This drawing is after an oil painting titled "Girl with a Feather" by Mian Situ. I saw it in the June 2001 issue of The Artist's Magazine. Situ's use of shadow and light was excellent. I decided to try to capture it in pen & ink. I went straight to ink, without an underdrawing, which allowed me to "freestyle" a bit. Drawn on 8.5 x 11 inch, medium tooth paper with Micron 01, 03 & 05 pens.

:clap: A very nice study. I did not see the piece you are speaking of, but would like to. I prefer to work without an underpainting or drawing most of the time. That comes from doing drypoint etching in my case. I have developed more confidence working in this manner, and you show much confidence in this piece :)

Very well done digistyle. Like the way you made the lines follow the contours.
