View Full Version : in the pond - final

10-09-2001, 08:46 PM
Final effort in pen and ink on Arches 140lb hot pressed pad. 6"x3".

Still very much a beginner at p&i, but think I am improving gradually.

Nice fish Ruth :clap: Yup I would say you are improving. Now that you have the line work done, you could try some shading using stippling instead of lines to give it a bit more depth. :) It takes a bit longer but you can get more subtle tones that way. Just a suggestion :D

Thank you Artdude. All suggestions welcome :D

I'm going to give it a try.

Nice lines to this fish Ruth - I like!

Just make sure that kitten doesn't get into this post :D

Very nice fish! looks good enough for sushi!:p

Artdude is right about the stippling, this would be beautiful done that way.

Thank you Christie :)

Was going to have it for dinner tonight, but decided on spaghetti instead :D

Treated myself to some proper pens about a month ago, so will have a try at the stippling.

I miss stippling a great deal...:)
