Andress House Inked

I love the feel of a fountain pen gliding over handmade paper. I prefer a rougher texture, unlike many of my artist friends, for this delicate, detailed work. I draw like I paint, with sketchy lines in a freestyle hand.  Like handwriting, no two artists draw the same.  I let the pen find the angles until the whole composition comes together, and then come in with a little water on a brush.  Tonight I am using a new Koi water brush pen, and am enjoying the ready flow at the brush tip.  I think I will be turning this into a painting,  but will try one other composition first.  Painting number 1747 in 1747days.
