Finished Inks…

Had a busy day today at the brilliant CYA conference. Thoroughly enjoyed presenting the ‘Crowd Funding’ session and teaching a great class of keen artists.

Returned home all pumped up after so much energy flying around. managed to finish this one off. Really enjoying using pen and ink at the moment.
