Re: P&I Forum Monthly Challenge - July

"Moon on Ragatz Lane, Napa CA" providing - or at least reflecting - light, at night, as seen from my - rural - front yard. Graphite sketch with pen-and-ink on 60# (96 gsm) 6" x 8-1/2" (~15 x 22 cm) drawing paper, using an Ooly fine-nib fountain pen (purchased new for $6 several years ago in Murphys, California, either at Sustenance Book Store or Maisieblue; it was so long ago I can't remember which) and home-mixed "sepia" (ok, that's a stretch) ink consisting of about 75% Pelikan 4001 Brilliant Red and 25% Parker Super-Quink Permanent Black.

Probably more than anyone wants to know...

And yes, those are supposed to be trees (Coast Redwoods and Monterey Pines, along with a modicum of artistic license, fwiw) in front of the moon. (It's a slow day, here on Ragatz Lane...)

Drat! I forgot; suggested subject for August: a handful of pebbles.

You've created a beautiful drawing Skip, I'm not sure if I find it ominous or romantic but it's certainly arresting.

“...I’m not sure if I find it ominous or romantic...”
