Figure, Pen n' Ink

Week before last, at the Thursday night figure drawing session. I decided to try my luck at pen and ink. I'd recently trained a Hunt 102 to be fairly cooperative at least on my sketch book, which has a smoother finish. The bristol I took to the drawing session had a vellum finish and probably a little more tooth than my pen nib was comfortable with. For the life of me I couldn't get light, delicate strokes- hence the detail in the hair where I could afford to be heavy-handed. Oh, well, worse things happen at sea .....
