Lovely work, Geninne! Your white lining is very consistent. I understand you are using a straight pen with white ink from a bottle. One question - have you ever used white ink in a drafting pen, filling the pen cartridge with ink? I have tried to do so, but the nib always gets clogged very quickly.

Such a beautiful painting! The blues are so soothing and to my mind a departure from much of your other work. I love Anna Atkins cyanotype studies and can see how they inspired you. Wonderful!

That is such a pretty gallery at the NYPL! I'm bookmarking it and maybe I'll have some some stitching time in the future to embroider one or two of those Ocean Flowers.

Needless to say: a great mmmmmm for your illustration :-)
