  • Thank you Brian, you might need to play around with the sharpening until it makes the marks you want. I tend to have a flat area on one side and sharpen the corner to a point this gives you several different planes to work with. I use a bit of bamboo cane as a holder.

  • Lovely contrast between sunlight and shadow, beautiful, Barry. Pen and wash is my favourite technique.
