Smile Monthly PEN & INK Project -- May, 2012.

Monthly Pen & Ink Project -- May, 2012.

Hi Everyone,

The following are the Images for our Monthly P&I Project, and I hope lots of you will join in and have some fun with all of us during the month.

Rules For The Monthly P&I Project:-

1) Use one or more of the photos.

2) Credit the Photographer of the photo(s) in your first post. They are listed in the first post each month.

3) Drawings may be any size, as small or as large as you like.

4) You may choose to pen in all black, all monochrome, or coloured penwork. If you wish you may also use a wash of Watercolours or Coloured Pencils etc. Entirely your choice, as long as Pen and Ink is a major contribution.

5) Cropping, combining, adding, subtracting to the work is all allowed.

6) All drawings from these Images must be posted in this Thread -- do not start a new one.

7) Create a beautiful piece of artwork for us all to enjoy, and most of all, have fun.

Val.

Thanks Val for another great collection of images. There are some real challenges in here. The Grand Tetons landscape is calling me, even though I am useless at landscapes in pen... or any other medium for that matter lol

Hi all!

More fun pictures - thanks again Val.

I did these quick sketches to try out my new folded pen. All are on 8 1/2 X 11 cheap copy paper. I noted that the wetter the ink, the faster the flow; I wasn't able to produce fine lines with calligraphy ink. Even with thicker ink the pen puts down a lot of ink; all bled through completely. (I got a bit sloppy and smeared a bit because it took a while to dry to the touch.) It wouldn't tolerate any fussiness - very freeing really. I think I'll be playing with this new pen for a while.

Lovely Iris Marriam.

Chris I like your quick sketches, nice loose style. Is a folded pen a dip pen with that weird nib, that is folded? They do look interesting. Did you make it or buy it?

Cem great work on the sunflowers.
