and then there's this:

A portrait of a Nepali man, that I've also been working on for the past month.
Stippling with a dip pen is both meditative and exhausting— exhausting in a good way.
It's been a rough couple of weeks. Diving into these drawings has been so soothing.

Untitled (so far).
61 cm x 91.5 cm, India ink.

Your pen and ink work is masterful. Is there any chance you might post a very close close-up of one of the two faces? I would love to see what you do to achieve such depth and realism. Both of these are so beautiful and inspiring -- as is all of your work!

Thank you so much, Danielle!
I will post a photo for you soon. The faces are drawn with pointillism, so little dots of ink layered on top of one another for shadows and depth.

Oh my, this is beautiful and impressive. The patience you have. Can't wait to see the finished drawing (see I have no patience ;-)

Thank you so much, Silvia!
It's kind of meditative, though I can't wait to finish it too :)
