Cowboy Fiddler - original ink figurative drawing

I drew with a 512EF bowl dip nib and then applied water.  I love the way these kinds of nibs make contact with the paper.  They don't move smoothly like ballpoints and they sort of 'catch' every now and then, which I think gives an interesting look.   Now I'm not saying the lines in this sketch are interesting, since I pretty much covered them up with water, but the nibs can and do provide these textures most of the time.  This sketch is on 12 x 9" mixed media paper.  To see more of my artwork, please click here to visit my daily painters blog, Hackberry Street Studio.
