Delia Ephron drawing by Alison Garwood-Jones

I love juicy ink sketches with a graphic punch. This one was created with a Pentel Brush Pen and Noodler’s fountain pen ink.

I almost never nail the drawing on the first try. You have to warm up your hand and your head, like a ballet dancer at the barre sliding her foot to the front, side, back, and repeat. Once you’re in flow mode — hand, mind and spirit aligned — the sketch happens.

The angels weep.

Be sure to keep them away from your page. Teardrops can dissolve a drawing.

Portrait of Delia Ephron.
