8 X 11 Ink Pen

Yesterday I got a call informing me of a free portrait class by a very good local artist held an hour later.  I jumped at the opportunity. When I got there I realized it was an oil painting class and the only things I had on me was my trusted ink pen. We had 2 models to choose from, husband in one room wife in the other and 2 hours with some critiquing and breaks in between.
I felt like I needed to draw both so I hurried a bit to get them done...... lol

                                                      8  x  10  Ink pen and Watercolor

This sweet little girl is part of my family and when you have a talent I think sometimes it needs to be given away. So this was my present to her parents.

I used to draw in pencil first but it is rare now. I had to push myself out of the boat sort to speak and start drawing directly in INK. It's a bit scary sometimes but it gives a certain look to the work that would not be there if I erased some of the line.
What about you ?
Do you go over the edge (artwork that is .......  ) sometimes too and what is it you do  ?
