This picture was done before I signed up for your class I used Faber Castell pitt artist pen. I did buy the pen nibbs and water proof black ink and will be using that in the next work I do.

It will be interesting to see how your style changes with the pen and ink... I haven't gone there yet!

Trying to get the right pen nibs together. Ordered the wrong ones.

I'm going to be painting in Europe, so don't want the messy ink right now... I may try it after that.

Hi lorettaje... I haven't visited the Craftsy site for quite a while and was so excited to see all the fantastic Fine Art projects that have been done. I love, love, love this beautiful bird and cactus artwork. You are very talented and I look forward to seeing more of your projects. Kind regards, Paula

Thanks so much AdhillsGal, I really had fun doing this. The picture came of an art book called "Painting with watercolor, pen and ink" by Claudia Nice. I worked on it over about a month. and enjoy the picture so much. Thanks for your comment.
