Pen and Ink isn't as messy as pencil or charcoal, that's why I like Pen & Ink! I've been working on a large charcoal drawing and I keep forgetting to put paper under my hand. I have to get up and go wash my hands when I realize what I'm doing - smearing charcoal all over the drawing. David cut me a large board to tape the drawing to so I can draw on the easel now, I do like that better. Thanks to my wonderful husband.
This is an adventure for me, something I've always wanted to do: to be a real Artist! So I rented a studio, lets see how it goes.
