Exploring Mark making

This piece was drawn with one fine nib and kandahar ink. I think it is important to play around with your mark making tools whatever your medium. It is often possible to make a wide variety of marks without ever changing a nib. Do remember to use a thicker quality paper for inkwork to avoid the blotting paper effect and don't press too hard otherwise you will tear the paper surface.
