An ink drawing to test new paper

Ink Drawing - Paper Test - Steph Chalmers - 2012
This started as a test piece to see how this paper took indian ink... it's taken about four hours so far. 

The paper is Hahnemuhle, Drawing and Sketching Paper, Acid Free, A2, 140gsm. 
The texture is smooth enough. There's only a small amount of ink bleed, which is okay by me. Thick drops of ink sit on the paper and dry without seeping in over time. 
I do think a heavier gsm paper would feel better.

I feel compelled to keep going right to the edge of the paper.
