Realistic and Abstract Pen-work

His favorite instrument to draw realistic and abstract pen-work pictures is the famed Rotring Rapidograph 0.1. Siddiqui’s ‘Native Girl’shows a young Native Canadian warrior girl in the fullest detail of her ethnic war dress. We see her brood besides a gnarled old tree with a couple of tipis in the background under a dark and ominous cloudy sky. His ‘Arab Musician’, ‘Ancient Bazaar’, ‘Tiger’ ‘Charlie’ and ‘Horse Carriage’ are all worth watching closely as you see each fine black line meticulously adding to the overall exquisiteness of each marvelous image. Excellence in pen-work also becomes evident in his fascinating ornamental pictures of the ‘Flying Bird’, and ‘Flowerpot’ and other abstract images.
