My grandfather was an excellent pen & ink artist. I have several of his pieces hanging in my studio & home. To better understand the medium, I took a Pen & Ink Illustration class that encouraged us to work with different inks & techniques. For this portrait of Judy Garland as Dorothy, I challenged myself to study the contours of a face while avoiding traditional shading & outlines.
