OMG....where do you get the patience? EXCELLENT!!!!!
Artist Reply: Rita, thank u again for your kind comments on my work. Patients was never my strong suite. Drawing with ball point has forced me to slow down and take careful consideration of my next drawing move. I don't put pen to paper without thinking it through.
Superb, brilliant or most excellent ink drawing Vincent! I love your details, style, reflections, lighting and style!
Artist Reply: Thank you Jerry. IT is always a pleasure to post here at artwanted and your comments encourage me to continue to work. The half tones and values that can be acheived with Archival or 100% acid free ball point pen inks like the ones I use in the Steadtler "Triplus" pens are perfectly suited for the types of works I produce. Thanks again!

Artist Reply: Thanks for your wonderful comments on this one. It actually took just over 32 hours to complete. Lots of layers and soft line work but, well worth it to me.
Artist Reply: Thank you Helen. The detail work took some time to get done but, I had fun doing it. It is important to any home portrait to find a balance between the details and the less well defined areas in a scene. The home owner will see any detail missing but, will be unhappy with something made too prominent that they don't want. Therefore, it is important to ask lots of questions about the view you will be rendering for them before you get started.
