Default itchy

Hi

this silhouette of a streetlantern is some sort of sign at the beach of Etretat (and of course in other places ...)
I worked on it trying to emphasize back to the base of drawing: dark and light, strokes, lines and forms remembering the days at school, when we had to work with china ink, pens and brushes ...

Wolfgang,

I like the effect. I'd think of rain before "itching", unless it refers to itching as some need to create a better picture!

Ansel Adams, in many iconic pictures, used a scraping device to the same effect and such instruments for drawing on film can still be obtained on eBay.
