Oh I think this is awesome :thumbsup: , what a lot of work you have put into it and it shows

Great line work, it really captures the starkness of the rocks and castle. I don't think it needs colour. Jen

wonderful Maureen. I've always liked pen work, because done right, like in this, the lack of color is actually a plus.

It would make a beautiful poster! Nice work!

Awesome! Maybe add some digi colour first ... then see if you want to do it "for real"....

Excellent pen work. I always like color, even a little blue to suggest winter snow, but you are busy this weekend and your pen is great.

Great sketch of the castle Maureen. I don't think it needs any colour. The black and white conveys the stark, uncompromising and rather grim look of the place.

Extremely nice ink sketch!!!

Gorgeous Maureen. I sure have missed seeing your work. I will have to make more of an effort to check in. I'm glad you liked some of my images for this week and hope you can find to join in later this week. Enjoy your weekend!
