Lately, I’ve been challenging myself to do lots of sketches in pen and ink.  Since erasing isn’t an option, working this way forces me to really LOOK at the subject matter, and then try to make my strokes on the paper as clean, well-placed and minimal as possible.

I worked from this fashion photo tonight:

While the result has some proportional defects, I’m enjoying the learning process and will keep at it!
