Process: My first Brush Pen Sketches, No Pencil!

2014 9 LOJONG WATERBRUSH SKETCH copyToday I created my first brush drawing, wonky, clean and lovely.
Five minutes, done, no attempt to brush over, single strokes.
Very exciting for me, so I had to share.
This one is in my lojong journal.  By the time I complete the drawing I
will have journal notes for my ongoing commentary on my practice.

  4. Very nice! I started using brush pens last year and now I can’t be without them. I actually tried one a few years ago and didn’t feel like I had enough control with it. This time has been entirely different. I suppose I didn’t give myself enough time to get to know it.

    Also, I probably won’t do my Forestry Friday post this week, again. I have too many other commitments and I want to give it the time it deserves. I haven’t forgotten.


I love hearing from visitors!
