Georgia Sketches

For an assignment with an Advanced Pen & Ink course we were required to maintain a sketchbook journal to record and experiment with different inking techniques and patterns. 


For me it was a particularly vexing challenge to try and freehand various scenes without penciling anything in first. I was using dip-pens and brushes, and the results were of a spontaneous style that was much lively than my usual linework. It became a way to quickly fix a lasting impression in my mind that I still employ to this day - a good habit to hang on to, even after moving on for many years later I still can trace the subject matters in my mind.
