2nd entry for Feb 5, 2014

These are, from the top, three 10-minute studies, a 20-minute one and a 15-minute study below. All are on 18 x 18" sheets of paper; the top three are done with Pitt pen and india ink washes in brushpens on Canson Recycled Sketch paper. The more beige one is india ink on a sheet of cold-pressed watercolour paper, and the lowest one is on some Strathmore Series 400 paper, same media.
The better-quality papers absorb the ink faster, which impedes aq steady flow of ink, and means more fusssing, but on the upside, the brushpens do help contain the mess potential of ink.
