I’m not sure where my aversion to using pencil in my drawings started. Maybe because pencil marks are not permament. Using ink means I have to live with any mistakes which I make.

In fact I’ve come to embrace the errors in my work.

Isn’t that what art is about? Making an image of something and adding personality and changes. If I produce a perfect reproduction of something, for example, where is the personality?

I think I’ll continue to use ink and wash.
