The Swardfish pen and ink drawing is a classical example of American artist Russ Orme. Russ calls the Eastern Shores of Maryland home and most of his work is inspired by the outdoor environment he lives in. The Swardfish drawing is a great example of American-made artwork known as pen and ink. The swardfish drawing was made on a smooth piece of oak wood that measures 11 1/4 X 30 inches. The camera will never pick up the true detail of these very interesting pieces. Be sure to click on the photo to see some additional close up images. This piece is artist signed by Russ Orme.

The technique of the pen and ink drawing is vastly different from that of any work the artists does. The work done with a pen is consequently very unique. By nature it is a much harsher and a less flexible instrument than either the pencil or the brush, even though pens have come a long way. A pen drawing has a distinct individuality, no matter what kind of a technique is used, fundamentally because of the manner of getting the various tones and shadows, which is different from that in the other mediums generally used.
