The Gift of Vegetation
Still lollagagging over finishing my painting and in the mean time, I did another pen and ink. This one, The Gift of Vegetation, is 8X10 on Stratford Bristol Board, the good kind. I'm using a Hunt's 512 nib. It's actually not for drawing but I like the thick line and that it holds a lot of ink before I need to dip again.
As with my other pen and ink, I'm not preparing any image; I just start on the paper and see what happens. I still have that Horror vacuae thing going: I like to fill up the spaces.
Oh yes, Happy New Year 2008. Remember, whatever you do today, you'll do for the rest of the year.
