Pavilion No.2

In spring 2003 I did a pencil drawing from life of a pavilion in Washington Park in Springfield, IL.  Overly eager, I finished and then immediately sprayed it with fixative, making erasing impossible.  Once I came to my senses, I realized that I had messed up one of the columns.  But this summer I transferred and inked it again, correcting the column mistake and filling in a bit more background and grass.  Hope there’s still enough spontaneity in it for y’all.   

8 x 10 inches, pen and ink on paper, from 2018.  Print is a matted, mounted, signed 600 dpi print on white acid-free cardstock with half-inch borders, of a limited edition run of 50. I only use permanent, pigment-based HP inks which meet the ISO 11798 fade-resistance standard.
