Three Pines

My wife recently gave me a card imprinted with a William S. Rice (American, 1873-1963) block print entitled "Fallen Leaf Lake" that resulted in the following pen-and-ink pseudo block print, done on crumpled (then ironed) buff writing paper with Pilot Precise V5 extra fine pen, and colored ink pens (Tombow, Micron, etc.). Size is 5-1/2" x 8-1/2" (~14 x 22 cm).



Unrelated is the following final version of "Approaching Storm." By way of explanation, this - as a WIP - was posted in the P&I Forum Monthly Challenge-July in response to a comment about Emily Carr (Canadian, 1871-1945). Not wanting to appear to hijack the Monthly Challenge thread and not wanting to clutter the Pen and Ink forum with yet another thread that "started" somewhere else, I'll post it here. It is done on Canson Bristol (smooth side) 96# (260 gsm) using Sakura Micron 005, Pilot Precise V5 extra fine and my trusty Ooly fountain pen with a fine point nib (loaded with home-mixed "sepia" ink) and - obvious to anyone familiar with the Canadian Group of Seven and/or Tom Thompson - was strongly influenced by the latter's "The West Wind" and "The Jack Pine." Size is 6" x 8" (~15 x 20 cm).

Re: Three Pines

I like both, but particularly the second one ... very nice finish to this.

Re: Three Pines

That "Approaching Storm" really has something Skip,- sort of a Japanese woodcut + abstraction feel to it.
I've seen you use this approach a couple of times now & when I look at this ,although the design is perfect ,the line work (to my eyes)is crying out for the use of characterful tapered lines from the right kind of pen in the long lines .
That tiny adjustment alone would prevent the already perfected elegant sophistication of your design being compromised & in conflict with the line quality.
A small step perhaps but a resolution in your drawings I feel.
