Took about an hour to do this one.

Black ink using a dip pen.

Thought I would try something different.

Placed a watercolor wash over Ink drawing.

Thanks for posting both versions. Very interesting, indeed.

Some pen & ink drawings stand on their own and are most effective as ink drawings. But I think that (and this is not an insult) the simplicity of this drawing is really complmented by the addition of color and improves the drawing.

Nicely done.

Very good Phillip, and the wash really adds to it. Only a small nit: I do think the background is too empty... Maybe a suggestions of mountains or a line of trees???

Hey Phillip. I like this one to. The color on the second one really does makes a difference.
