Monthly PEN & INK Project -- May, 2014.

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 all these lovely choices! Here is my interpretation of the collie by Canis Lupis on Canson sketch paper, 10x7 using mainly my Parker Pen.

Christel -- Your Collie is beautifully drawn, and you have captured his pose perfectly.

Thanks to everyone who has posted the kind remarks about the Images -- I am looking so forward to seeing your work.

Val.

Re: Monthly PEN & INK Project -- May, 2014.

Hi Everyone. I decided to try the bird this month. There have been similar bird photos in previous months and I've yet to draw one so this was the month to give it a go. I went a little too dark on some of the shading and perhaps should have differentiated the underbelly from the back more (it all looks gray instead of a white underbelly), but overall I'm happy. The texture for feathers matches well to my scratchy style.

Tuscany, nice job on the dog. Almost tried that one myself as it is such a good photo.

Re: Monthly PEN & INK Project -- May, 2014.

Love the Collie and Warbler and the great reference photos. Just learning the ropes of the site. I think I am going to work on the Green Tree Frog and experiment out of my comfort zone with water color on ink. It will be closer to the end of the month before I can finish the piece and post it. Thanks for the challenge!

Re: Monthly PEN & INK Project -- May, 2014.

Scott...Your bird sketch is superb!

I recently attended a watercolour workshop and decided to kill two birds with one stone. Therefore I made a watercolour sketch of Irv's Barn and Farmhouse and added details in pen and ink, instead of the other way around. Val, I hope that is acceptable for posting in this thread.
