Project Description

What type of piece is this? Collage/Mixed Media Share a little about the materials, processes and techniques used to create this piece. This project was attempted to practice cross hatching and adding value to a pen and ink drawing. I took the photo a couple of years ago while sailing out of Sydney Harbour on a cruise ship. I printed out my photo in black and white and then traced all the main lines. I used waterproof ink to fill in the lines and then added the tone to the drawing using two different sized nibs. Is the piece for sale? No What are you most proud of? Using the pen and ink successfully for the first time (without getting ink all over me) :) What advice would you give someone starting this project? Take your time with the initial sketch.
