More Pen and Ink Sketching

I find it so much easier and relaxing to sketch with either pencil or pen and ink.  I can sit where ever and sketch from my lap.  Not so with painting.

Here are my most recent pen and ink sketches I've done in the Moleskine Watercolor sketchbook using my Pilot Prera with Lexington Gray Ink.

This first is a sketch of a tiny birthday bear given to me many years ago.  It wears the birthstone Opal.  This little guy might be 2 inches tall standing but I've never taken him off the cardboard chair shaped box it came in.


Although this is not exact by any means......it represents a State Park called Cooper's Rock.  I started out following a photograph but then slipped off into my own little world and worked this without reference.


This next is a baby black capped chickadee.  I actually thought to take a few scans along the way.

Way to go on scanning the stages of your baby Chickadee drawings. I think this effort really helps others by showing them how something progresses and also by demonstrating that sometimes it is wise to keep going even if we think what we are doing is lost.
