Pen and Ink Drawing of a Sunflower, Medieval Muse,Kim Blair

Medieval Muse
9x6, pen and ink
 on 140 lb hot pressed watercolor paper

When looking at old drawings I love to get in close and check out the subtle nuances of the artist's mark making... fun little twists and turns of the drawing instrument which create the character of the work.  The reference photo for this one was taken at the Highland's Community Garden, in our neighbourhood.  You might remember the oil painting I did last fall of a sunflower (called Highland Sun) from the same stand of majestic blooms...
I am starting a series of pen and ink drawings... most will be a finished size of 6x9 (or 9x6), on 140 lb acid free hot-pressed watercolor paper, with a 1/2 inch edge outside of the artwork for framing purposes.

(This ink drawing is on white paper, but the photo makes it look grey)

Hot off the drawing pad... ready for you to add a mat and frame.

$50.00 + $10.00 S/H anywhere in North America. (*contact me for S/H outside of N.A.)
