These are three separate pen and ink drawings of a woman’s portrait. The initial sketches were drawn with pen, then water and ink washes were used to soften the edges. These three pieces of art were drawn in a very loose and careful style that allowed for strong variations between the light and dark surfaces of the portraits. A slight shade of grey wash was used to bridge the gap between the careful placing of white and black, which helps to form the shapes of the woman’s face in each drawing.
