Highlighter Pens

I have spent much of the spring terms life drawing sessions drawing with highlighter pens. I am intrigued by the visual impact using these pens give to the drawing. Different colour pens give different qualities with the orange and pink, perhaps, providing the most ‘trippy’ experience.

The unique quality that these pens give however does not always translate when attempting to reproduce them. Computer scanners do not transfer the luminous quality digitally, photographing the drawings seems to be the best option, however, the fluorescent colour is best reproduced in a modest light which helps lifts the colour but at the expense of a darkened paper .background
