Hat Drawing Tutorial, Steps 1 and 2
I used a black Pilot V-5 Hi-Tecpoint 0.5 pen that is more or less waterproof after completely dry. This is how I started all the hat drawings. The more texture and detail, the better. (I can't buy this pen in the US, can't even order it from anywhere in the US. Why is this? It's a great pen, but I have bought my last two batches in Paris and Barcelona and was finally able to order twelve from England, but the postage was killing. It's a pain to have to go to such lengths to buy this pen!)
In the middle, a detail of the hat, showing the amount of texture that seems to work well. (And then one of the tulips in its new taller more leafy stage.)
So find a knitted hat and go do a detailed textural drawing of it. Now I'm going to go paint over my two textural hat drawings and show you step two.
