Heartland Arts Inked

I started this ink drawing on location, when waiting for the daily judging to finish in Steelville. Choosing this paper from the art's council to use for their upcoming fundraiser, I had no idea what to expect.  Well, the paper did not release the ink, water could not persuade it to.  With pen, I heavily applied ink, which also held it's spot when dampened. So, I brought it home to finish, and actually used a brush with ink to get the darks.  This paper is thin and not cotton or rice, and has a wonderful color, but I will not work with it again by choice! I guess I am a bit of a paper snob, lol! Painting number 4267 in 4267 days.
