Langdon Rocks

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.
