Pen and Ink ~ Grape Leaf

Life has been very busy here in the first couple weeks after Christmas and New Years.  Being a school teacher, its the end of the semester which means finals, grading, organizing, preparing for a new semester, etc.   My drawing class has just completed their last project, which is a pen and ink drawing. This is one of the examples that I had for them.  I enjoy pen and ink... there's a certain trepidation in knowing that mistakes are permanent - but also a certain type of freedom in knowing that if one is made, you'll have to creatively figure out how to incorporate it and make it "work" with the rest of the drawing!
