Ghost Print Drawings, Part 2

Untitled No. 5, 2019/2020, pen and ink over monotype ghost print, image 6 x 8 inches, sheet 8 1/2 x 11 inches 
These are a few more of the drawings I completed during lock down.  By this point I was on a roll drawing on top of the ghost prints as I kept exploring fountain pens and ink.  As it turns out, the dark blue ink works well with these, also the ink and pen combination allowed me to get some nice soft tones, which I have not been able to get with other pen and ink combinations.     Nubloso, 2018/2020, pen and ink over monotype ghost print, image 8 x 6 inches, sheet 11 x 8 1/2 inches 
Some of that softness can be seen in the cloudscape above, and to be honest I did not think it would turn out well.  But I'm glad the pen behaved and it didn't leave pools of ink behind.  The same can be said about the drawing below, this one I'm very happy with.
