Pencil Drawings by Børge Bredenbekk
Børge Bredenbekk's pencil work is of high technical character, exploring a self-taught technique of drawing inverted. This process involves photographing the drawings and inverting them in photoshop, adding finishing touches there. This technique creates a moody, dark feeling, much like a scratch board. He explores different subjects and technical challenges and combines photographic references and his imagination, creating hyper real drawings. Most his work is reproduced as high quality Giclee prints in editions.
