JC Fountain Drama

A return to old school pen and ink techniques - shading and hatching with lines, on perhaps the most iconic fountain in Kansas City.  Using my favorite paper in a square format, I simply begin to draw groom the focus area out. If I feel I need a little guidance for those lines, I drop a dot to mark beginnings or ends of a mass.  I don't ever use pencil first, because I feel it resists the ink.  No water added today - I'm using India ink!  This painting is the 2260 in 2260 days, and is hanging at Burns and McDonnell, 9400 building, straight back from the main entrance, along with 13 other paintings.
