The following correspondence originally took place on my Facebook wall, upon my artwork, “Recreating Giovanni Domenico Tiepolo’s Circa-1759 ‘Roofs and Chimneys of Country Houses’“…
Rayn: Created in Spring 2000 for art class at Stony Brook University.
The assignment was to recreate an illustration of Giovanni Domenico Tiepolo‘s circa-1759 “Roofs and Chimneys of Country Houses” using black ink, a dip pen, water and a paint brush on white 8×10 paper.
Sara: Amazing! I wish I had gotten a chance to work with a dip pen, it looks like a more effective way to work with shading then destroying your hands with colored pencils lol
Rayn: Thanks for the compliment! Dip pens are definitely fun! Well, so long as you’re willing to give up color to work in black and white, that is!
