An attempt at Heron Wings, I'm sure I will be doing other versions of this.

My Little Songbird

My Little Songbird, an experiment in using Sumi Ink and Brushes with Acrylic.

Mr Dan is a friend I met at Bridgeport coffee.   If you go there, you probably know who I am talking about because he practically lives there.   Anyhow, Mr Dan has been trying for some time now to get me to experiment with Sumi Ink.   Here is a picture from his studio last week where he gave me a full lesson on how to use the ink and what bushes and tools to use.   What a sweet gift Mr Dan.    Above, today's drawings are the first results of what I've learned.
