In with the old

Elizabeth Tower, Ink and watercolour 210 x 149 mm

Ridiculously hot on Saturday afternoon but I'd started so I finished. I thought I'd continue with indian ink and a dip pen. Indian ink because it wont bleed with a wash, and a dip pen because of its variations in line. I went to a seminar once where Tony Ross was speaking, and he buys old used nibs from junk shops. I have a couple that were previously owned, and having formed their own characteristics, they add their personal history to my drawing.
