Urban bamboo

Trying out the bamboo dip pen around town, people (and dog) watching in the parks and streets. It’s great for gesture drawing and foliage, something about the nib invites a playful wandering line, feeling out the shapes and shadows. From the top: looking down into Parade Gardens, boules in Queens’s Square, tourists and buskers by the Abbey, dogs and their owners, sunny park-life, and under the trees in the Circus. (These were all done with brown, blue or grey ink, before I started to use the lighter De Atrementis inks.)

    These are WONDERFUL, as you already know! I am so out of practice, and I really need to get out there and do some work similar to yours! I don’t even know my own style for this. Good for you! And thanks for sharing!!
