Pen and ink work

Recently I have produced more pen and ink pieces. This also linked to some of my sketches while on holiday in Canada. Indeed on Easter Monday I sat outside the artisan yard in Wareham, Sue Maclean was working on a pointillist piece of Wareham and I started an A3 version of my sketch from the Zephyr cafe in Squamish which I have just completed this week.

In the case of this and another sketch I have been adding detail to the dominant feature are the coniferous trees on the lower slopes. I have not counted the “trees” I have drawn but definitely mindful practice.

A geographer friend commented on how Langdale in the Lake District would look in this style, my only worry would be that the area was so well drawn for previous walking guides (name slips memory – aha Wainwright). An idea to add to possible future projects.
