Sepia Ink Life Drawings
These three life drawings were done in sepia ink with an old fashioned steel nib dip pen (Gillott 303) and sable brush. It was a bit nerve racking because there was no chance to correct a mistake or backtrack over a line too many times without irretrievably damaging the paper, but for some reason I had the impulse to tackle the sessions tightrope style, with no net. I had to work slowly but it was a good bout of discipline, though I probably won't attempt it again for a while!
