Canal Street, New Orleans

Another adventure in pen and ink with an ink wash. I'm still getting a handle on the materials, but I think I'm starting to feel more comfortable. While I would like to tighten up my ink drawings a bit, I'm slowly getting used to the idea that I can sketch with ink in much the same way I can with a pencil, that re-statements and wandering lines are not such a bad thing. I've been especially inspired lately by the wonderful drawings that Marc Taro Holmes and Stephen Gardner have posted on their blogs.

  1. thanks for your kind comments, Alex. I gotta say, you've put a lot of detail into this drawing. I love the red accents :)
