dip pen drawings

Mildred Adams Fenton, science writer, dip pen drawing

I continue to feed my love of paper. I came across a box of vintage 20 .lb weight typing paper the other day. It has a wonderful, slightly rough finish and is a soft white. The sheets are crisp and make a lovely sound when flipping through the drawings. I bought the nearly full ream for $2.50 and came home to draw on it with my dip pen.

Smithsonian's photographs of women science writers gave me the needed inspiration to draw portraits. I drew 10 drawings of which two worked out. Although, the paper becomes somewhat warped depending on how much water is added to the paints, I like the feel and look of it. It mimics the texture of a long lost document.

If you follow me on g+, you'll notice I've been sharing the thought-provoking aphorisms by Matt Berry from his blog: The Experience of Clarity. What sites do you like to visit for daily quotes?
