Re: Monthly PEN & INK Project -- May, 2012.

Everyone has done a great job so far. My weekly effort was to draw Fruit2 by Crystal Owl, just pen.



I rather like the red apple, but needless to say there are some things I would have changed if it was possible.

Looking forward to seeing what else others will come up with.

Very good Kathy, I like that you added the wood grain and your values are good.

Kathy, your fruit platter is really good. I have also attempted the fruit plate by Crystalowl.

Re: Monthly PEN & INK Project -- May, 2012.

Marriam - lovely watercolour iris! Great colours.

Chris - great sketches! I haven't heard of a folding pen before.

Cindy - I love your pen and ink sunflowers, and great use of colour.

Eileen - lovely detail work on the school house - and I love that you filled in the sky too - give great presence. Almost eerie.

Kathy - great use of contour lines, you really got good dimension on your apples. And I love the wood grain too.

Eileen - I love the fun and funky lines on the apples, and the wood grain is amazing.

I am new to pen and ink but wanted to jump in after lurking for a bit.

Here is my school house (pic courtesy of oldrockchick)

Re: Monthly PEN & INK Project -- May, 2012.

Natashya -- Welcome to the Pen and Ink Forum. And welcome to drawing with pen and ink. For someone who is new to P & I, you have made a great job of the Old Schoolhouse. And I am hoping we will see more from you.

GS -- Great to see you posting in the Project again. Your Audobon Warbler is beautifully done. I have always loved your penwork, and am so glad you penned this one for the Project this month.

Val.
