The Boat

The Boat

I think it is a very nice drawing and I love the ink marks

Grey at detail in this lovely drawing Mia.

Sorry Mia 'great' detail.

Boats rarely fail with me Mia. This one doesn't either, I like it. Nice work.

Nice work, brave to go straight in with the pen.

Nice drawing and good effect with the water.

Has worked well Mia.

This is great Mia ! Such a dynamic, fresh drawing !

It looks really good Mia, very clever to go straight in with your pen, I like it.

Thank you all so very much for your lovely and positive comments. I appreciate!

That Stabilo point pen sounds interesting. Ideal for your lovely sketch, Mia. Well done.

Beautiful sketch Mia! I just saw an artist using a Stabilo pencil and now I want to get one!

Many thanks for your nice comments, Ruth and Satu. Remember that those Stabilo pens are not lightfast. They are watersoluble but you can't frame or display your work. I just use them as a training for my sketches.

Great atmosphere - love it

Thank you very much Chas.

The word "exquisite" always comes to mind when one views your paintings, Mia! What a wonderful piece - beautiful lines and tonal work, with the right balance of detail and looseness. Superb work!

Thank you very much, Seok. I always appreciate your comments.

Hang on Studio Wall

I made this sketch immediately starting in ink (no pencil drawing). I used a watersoluble Stabilo point 88 marker. When dry, I gave it a wash with pure water. What do you think of it? I think it is not so bad, I like the subject. All comments very welcome :) Mia
