Chinese Dagger by philippeL Chinese Dagger by philippeL
Mixed media drawing of a decorative Chinese dagger of mine. I used watercolors for the sheath and the red strips, over a frame made of ink. Then I refined the shape and made the shadow with a graphite pencil.

Metal objects are really fun to do with pen and ink, since the lines are well-defined :hug:
