When I was in art school learning about ink drawing, I chose this picture to work on learning about how the strokes where made. Below is my attempt to copying this picture. I saw that proportion is an area that needs work.

This was a great exercise of learning how to draw with ink and drawing. It was not that easy but I am willing to try this again with other master artists.

I took a pen and ink drawing class for 3 weeks. This drawing was created with a traditional crow quill pen, Indian ink, and a few wood sticks.

Also, a flat brush was used for the washes on Bristol paper.

Here is the reference photo that I used. My father took this picture on one of his travels.
