Ink, Graphite; 5" x 8"
Another from the archives. Like Edge Of Thorns, Gathering was done with Marvy LePlume colored pens. Dunno if they're still available, but at that time their line included four or five shades of gray that lent themselves well to stippled light-dark gradations. I began using them, I think, after trying a friend's set of grayscale photo-retouching pens (in those days, we weren't all yet Photoshoppers). It's a little startling sometimes to be reminded how much my process and technique have evolved over the years.
