  4. Like the build up from the searching construction lines to the final simplicity in such a pose.

  5. Very firm lines! Solid construction. A different approach from your fluid style. I favor fluid, but I'm an old dog. 😊

  6. Thanks, all.

    I'm working on getting my art ready to show. Sorting old work, figuring out ways to mount that work and then making them gallery-ready.

    These new drawings are a pleasure in a busy time.

  7. Also, now that I have space to paint again, potentially thumbnails for future paintings.

  9. Thanks, Helen.

    I'm using what's available when I'm at the life drawing sessions.

  10. I was using a fountain pen for this drawing--first time trying it. It surprised me by blotting into the absorbent watercolor paper. I washed some of it out, then tried again, using different ink in places I didn't like the accidental stars and blobs.

    1. I always liked using a bamboo nib. I recently saw one for sale but I can't remember where. And watercolor paper loves to blob.

    2. I liked some of the accidents. And I love the way the ink flows from the fountain pen.

      I've had much less success with bamboo nib, though I do love the sumi drawing brush and ink.

    Precious. Have a nice day.

  12. Not feeling too puny, or I could have fun with this.

    Thanks, Karin.
