Diana and the Cherubs Inked

The City of Fountains is a constant source for drawing and painting.  As the years go by,  I find new ways to express their beauty in paint, or ink, or whatever media catches my eye.  The last couple of days I have been exploring them with my favorite fountain pen in one of my favorite khadi papers.  Once I lay down the line work, I find the values with my waterbrush pen, careful to save the whites.  I'm finding it a little more challenging than the India ink pen, where hatching is king.  But I really like the depth I can achieve with a little water.  In the darkest areas, I am adding another layer, gradating as I go.
