An ink drawing of some rocks at Langdon Park.
I used to work, almost exclusively, in ink. I really missed it and am looking forward to doing a few more urban/rural scenes in ink.
The paper was fantastic to work on. I have never used the Daler-Rowney drawing paper before. I usually stick to Strathmore and Canson brands. However, the ink worked so beautifully with this paper that I will be buying some more Daler-Rowney paper when I use this pad up. I am excited to experiment with coloured pencil on the paper as well.
I really like how this piece turned out. The rock is a little more phallic-looking than I would have liked. The rock IS shaped this way, however my line placements may have accentuated bits to make it seemingly more so.
Regardless, I still like it.
