West Somerton: Norfolk pen sketch
By Jamie Cooper, Jul 11 2019 02:06PM
West Somerton - a place where the Norfolk Broads comes close to touching the sea. Dip-pen & ink on 140lb watercolour paper: 20 x 16 inches.
It's difficult to know when to finish with a drawing like this. I thought that I was finished around 5 times and then added to it. I am now considering whether to take out or lighten a couple of areas using a scalpel blade. Due to the nature of using dip-pen on watercolour paper the texture of the paper sometimes means there are splodges - even with a fine paper like this. I will ponder this over the next few days.
