Trying to get a grip on drawing with a fountain pen that I got for my birthday, I decided to start doing quick portrait sketches with it on a regular basis (preferably every day). This is one I did of Kate, a member of a virtual portrait party. Her picture in which she’s wearing a striking striped sweater and her description in which she says to be an avid surfer inspired me to give it this twist. Concerning the waves, I tried to add a touch of Hiroshige.
