4th entry for Aug. 17, 2015

These 10-minute poses wrapped up the evening. The top two are Pitt pen on 18 x 18" sheets of Canson Recycled Sketch paper, and the lower two are tryouts with the same pen on 18 x 18" sheets of a lightweight Stonehenge paper I got at Aboveground. At least I think it was Stonehenge, but I may have misread. It had a lightly plastic-y pebbling to the surface, which wasn't especially friendly with the felt pen. Felt pens - at least the Pit ones - seem to work better when the surface is more absorbent, which helps wick the ink out onto the paper.
