Ink drawing – the trunk of a pear tree

Ink drawing, trunk of a pear tree, landscape drawing

I managed to do this ink drawing just before a cold rain shower came down last weekend. Temperatures have gone up nicely and I look forward to continue the ink drawing series in my indian sketchbook during this summer. It is difficult to draw on that gampi paper which is a bit like blotting paper. But I like the old-fashioned and simple look that the drawings on this paper inevitably get.

My new ink batch is a bit too fluid,but I am sure that will change soon under the spring and summer sun.
During the past years I have bought a enough stock of these photo album books, bound in old sari cloths from india, for future projects. I believe that works in books like these have a better chance to survive than single sheets of paper.

    Beautiful drawing, looks light and airy, I like the foreground work. Working hard at my drawing in Northumberland Langley woods, hope to post one soon. Regards
