  1. Learned a lot from this – Inking is improving as I begin to accept the tediousness of it. At first, I was mindlessly making marks. Appreciate these daily prompts. Otherwise, I would be thinking about what I might like to draw all day rather than actually drawing. Thank you for this wonderful lesson in mindfulness.

  2. Great theme with these pen and ink lessons! I have also seen some very interesting and expressive ink drawings where the artist used a “dot hatching” technique. It could be interesting to see an example of this as well. Just a suggestion. 🌞😊

  3. Stippling Oh yeah, patience is the word Matt. i should have scaled this one down but now i want to see see it thru and focus on the values. Love this series of lessons. Thinking of doing again and using these subjects for a little wash . may be a way to start learning watercolor. tom
