Pen and Ink Practice

Yesterday and today I worked on this small pen and ink drawing as a way of practising a slightly looser ( and quicker!) style of drawing than my usual very fine, controlled way of working.
   It was interesting ( although it came as no surprise) to see the extent to which I had to really concentrate hard on NOT making it too neat and tidy! The desire to make it neat was quite overwhelming..so this small practice piece is one of the most difficult challenges I've had for a long time!

The drawing was created using pen and ink on watercolour paper, with added coloured pencil.
