Quill Practice

I just wanted to play with a quill pen and see how my lines have changed over the years. Here is an update on a previous post from 2005. One clear difference is that I absolutely would not render local color anymore with pen.  Instead I limit my lines to the rendering of shadows. Also, I would do it fairly light-handedly. Definitely, I don't want to clog areas up. Although I have made some recent mistakes as I see in the drawing at Mokabees where I have chosen to render some black things with penwork. Not the preferred thing, I think.
