Left: Partial page spread from 9 x 12 inch Fabriano Venezia Journal. Sketch made with Pentel Aquash Brush Pigment Ink Filled Brush. (Right cropped because of scanning—this book need three scans on my scanner! And there's nothing on the right but a short note about the dog.) Click on the image to view an enlargement.

I was out and about and Anna brought her American Water Spaniel to Wet Paint. Molly is a lovely little brown dog. There was too much happening in the store—and I'd already been there for hours chatting with people—so I took photos of Molly and her lovely coiffed ears to sketch from later. (I put the photos up on my computer screen and sit back—this time without my glasses and a lot of squinting.)
If you click on the image and look at the eyes you can see how it's fun to lay in successive layers of this light black ink. I told you that this brush pen makes me more "sketchy" in my approach, and I think you can see that from this drawing as well, with lots of restated lines.
I haven't used the brush today. I think I'd better go do that right now!
