What with trying to be Creative Every Day I have been using my ink pens more often. I like the ability to sit in an easy chair and draw. I am trying to teach myself how to use pens for shading and drawing. It does take a little more thought, or maybe a little less fear. I have never drawn much with ink. I see all of these drawings that people render with ink and I like it. So I am hot on the trail of ink drawings. My mind also keeps going to spring. Wondering what all is under the snow. What will spring out when the snow melts away.

You go Lisa!!! This is great and you've got the idea. You have come such a long way since I started coming here.

I love ink too. I like to sit in the evening and doodle around.

Way to go, very nice! I like to get in a comfy place when I draw, I am never at a table. I was just thinking yesterday of trying an ink drawing.....keep up the work!

I agree with you Lisa.
Having a comfortable environment for sketching out ideas to completing a satisfying piece is very important.
I am glad you find time and the right place to start your hand drawn journal:)
Yes, indeed creative everyday!
