Pen and Ink Drawings for Winter

Since it is now snowing and very winter I felt it was timely to post a few pen & ink drawings I just found. These were done a while back as illustrations for some book publishers as well as being used for a class in drawing. I have made these into small prints for anyone interested. These were done on a bristol paper with a fine point Sharpie. I first drew the basic shapes with a 6H pencil to create the composition then went to work with the pen. Working in pen and ink this way can be very relaxing and a sort of meditation when there is a great deal of detail.  I recommend keeping them sort of small. Big is a lot of work. [grin] These are all around eight inchs on a side or near that.
