This has got to be one of the best you've done so far IMO. Great stuff! Really like the dark lines, the way the body is lying - so expressive and moody.

Great sense of light and shade. Definitely a technique to explore further.

Thanks very much Marten and delph. We did a day with ink at my experimental life drawing class back in March, I did enjoy it. The medium does require utter conviction, though (you can't really correct 'mistakes').

Well done! This is very rich with expression and emotion.
I have to agree with marten that it is one of, if not the, best so far!

Great mood.

This has a very special effect. What kind of ink is it? It seems the ink can stay on the paper, does not spread or diffuse like mine.
Aim, then, to be aimless.

Thanks Suzanne & Lake.

Lake, I think it was just Quink. The page was flat on the floor, as well (not on an easel).

Agree with Martin. Intriguing how the picture is 'whole' and 'dismembered'. Very much a body not a drawing.

Very lovely, very much alive and a good presence. Great colours too: Lady Blackengold!

Thanks Jane! I'm enjoying the ink and my new discoveries about edges and how to 'convey' them.
