Inktober day 31: ripe.
And it’s the Last day. Challenging and enjoyable.
We tend to think of Ripe as referring to young, but in England we say we also use the word in such phases say ‘he lived to a ripe old age. The drawing is of Art one of my former students. He has a magnificent face. Drawn with micro pen in orange and brown with white Jellyroll Pen for highlights.

Inktober: Day 21: treasure.
The Ponte Vecchio in Florence is not only a national treasure, but it’s filled with treasure. There are jewelers at street level and a hidden treasure at the top called The Vasari Corridor; a kilometer long passageway that connects the Uffizi Gallery to the Pitti Palace and contains hundreds of self portraits by Artists dating from the 16th to today ! It’s spectacular!

Inktober day 18: Sling. I am using the word in British manner as in ‘sling’ this over your shoulder’ . Here Hercules ‘slings’ his servant Lichas, into the air, curdling his blood into flint before he releases him into the sea. Why? Because he innocently gave Hercules a poisoned garment...
According to Ovid the Roman poet. To this day, a low crag can be seen rising from the waves
out of the deep Euboean Sea, that holds the certain outline of a human form.
