Back to inks again. Finished the Ducks in the summer. Time for something fairly quick again and since I gave up my collage materials, inks it is. Hoping that going back to the type of work I did in college to get new ideas.
This started as a quick sketch months ago in a sketch book. Resurrected and polished up in about an hour. She was fun to make. May daughter thinks it's her, but she just looks like a random girl to me.
At left is from one of my sketchbooks (drawn about a month ago) of a steaming teapot. It an example of drawing until you come up with something to really work on.
I overdid the steam, but it was fun to see how I could manipulate the ink smudges that invariably build up on my pen. So, I think it started out as an accident.
Below is a drawing that I made way back in 2004 when I was living in Philadelphia and working in Old Town. It's the pediment of a local columned building. I didn't note which building. A sketch of the mercantile building is in the drawing section of this website.
