Neat and sweet drawing Mia. Its a long time since I used this method . You are inspiring me to have another go.

A lovely and unusual painting, you have done a wonderful job

Thank you very much, Sylvia. I am looking forward to see your next posting! Sorry if the picture seems not to be very sharp but the daylight was a bit clouded when I took the photo.

Thanks Tao, much appreciated.

Very nice drawing Mia,

Beautiful drawing and composition Mia, a delight.

Delightful drawing Mia, with lovely tones.

Beautiful little painting using my favourite Sepia Mia.

Lovely study Mia and lovely gallery

Really like this - especially the limited use of the "wash".

Beautiful detailed drawing, Mia. Pen and wash work very well.

I've been reading about using a fountain pen for drawing . I really love this study so I may well be another one to be inspired by this piece

Thank you all so very much for your positive comments. I really do appreciate.

Diana, I did not use a fountain pen but a dip pen and a bottle of waterproof sepia ink. When dry, I added a wash with more and less diluted ink.

Elegant and beautifully ethereal, it's a really stunning piece, Mia! Love the textures, the variation of lines and the delicate tonal work as well.

You're a master at these Mia, this is super.

Thank you very much for your great comments, Seok and Val. They are a real boost to continue.

A beautiful pen and wash Mia.

Thank you very much, Sarah.

Thanks Maureen, much appreciated.

Pen and wash drawing. I used a dip pen and sepia ink for this. The wash was done with the same ink. I like to put the main subject off centre so it is not so static. All comments very welcome :) Mia
