Figure Drawing for December 12, 2011

10 Minute Pose

 I haven't worked with crowquill pens and ink with a brush in several years, but the previous experiments with pen and ink whetted my appetite, so I thought I'd go all in for a session or two (maybe more in the future).  I didn't bother to pencil anything in this next series, just started using the ink straight on the paper.  Any mistakes were either left on the page or brushed over ink on the black background.  Sneaky, I know... :-)

Also, sometimes errant, stray lines have a charm of their own...  I'm sure my fellow figure artist and occasional commenter, Dirk, would agree  :-)
