partly cloudy and forty-eight

Did the drawing with a fountain pen on a cool day in early spring from a thrid storey window from a building on a tall hill on the Bellarmine University campus, looking south. Came home and added a lot of pointilism work with dipping pens with Hunt 102 and 107 nibs, adding color to the grass sections in mid- and foreground, with a bit of green for the building to the right and some pink on the horizon trees. Added more when scanning showed the first application to be too faint, taking care to let the uncolored portions work with the color to emphasize objects in the landscape in an engaging way spatially.

10 x 6 11/16 inches, watercolor pencil and dipping pen on printed copy of fountain pen original, 2019. Print is a matted, mounted, signed 600 dpi color print on white acid-free cardstock with half-inch borders, in a limited run of fifty. I only use permanent, pigment-based HP inks which meet the ISO 11798 fade-resistance standard.
