28 x 40"

This is a drawing I've been sitting on for a week, but I'm very excited to be sharing it with you now. I think it is a good commingling of the various ideas I have been working through over the fall. I drew the gathering of birds then masked them off and began working with the ink. The masking fluid unfortunately pulled up all my pencil marks, but I suspected that might happen. I'll have to fill in the details on the birds again. I am working on a gorgeous and large piece of Khadi paper (a cotton rag paper handmade in India). It's 28 x 40" and so so thick it can just about stand up on its own.
