This is my first post in this forum...

I bought a new sketchbook and tried to take some quick notes using a drawing pen (the same engineers use...), and also did some more elaborated based on photos. This one was based on a photo I took somewhere in Norway.

Believe me, the paper was white, I had some problems with the digital camera...

Comments are welcome.

Thank you Flattwo and Artdude.

I started with no intentions more than to play a little with a pen, but I'm considering doing some serious works with this medium...

Art, I'll try to keep posting...

I really like this drawing els.

Wish I could see the sky a bit clearer, was it done with the pen or a brush?

I definitely think you should continue with pen and ink.

Ruth, in fact the sky is almost completely clear, the scan didn't help, there are only some traces here and there to suggest the clouds...
