This is a drawing that I have been working on for a few weeks. I love pattern, repeated shapes and stark lines, and decided to build a sequence. I used a fine tip Pilot pen, and actually went into the second pen as I wore out the first one. It is an 8x10 piece. At the moment, I am not sure if it is an inspiration for a really large painting, or something else. I like where it is going, and not too pleased with the darkest feathers. Overworked it, I think! I am actually especially happy with the bottom half of the sketch, where I left some of the feathers to the imagination. It gave me the chance to bring out the shapes and splits in the feathers, an irregularity that I like very much. It developed completely by accident, and I am as surprised by the result as can be!
