bonehunters at work


Another weekend visit to the Bonehunters' Quarry, and another bit of time spent watching children carefully scraping sand from bones. This time I tried to sketch as many different children as I could - they each dig differently.



I have been enjoying your daily drawings. I was wondering what pen you use that allows you to paint over so nicely.

I use a fountain pen - the key is the ink. Noodler's Ink makes a permanent black ink that is safe for fountain pens. You can find it at http://pendemonium.com/. (For other notes on my materials, feel free to visit http://www.elizabethperry.com/woolgathering/archives/001484.html, where I wrote a post about what I use from one day to another.)

Thanks for asking, and for visiting the site!
