ink sketches- Natural History Museum

this last friday Carol Fabricatore took us to the Museum of Natural History for drawing on location.
She is encouraging us to use ink as much as possible, which has been good for me. In the past i have been very loyal to my prismacolor only because I was too much of a pansy to go directly to ink. Well no more! fortune favors the bold.
You will notice that the Alouatta guariba has been executed in walnut ink, which I have never used before but I really dug it. It reminds me a bit of the sublime Delacroix sketchbooks
