Pre-inking! Enjoy the watercolor washes while you still can! The second one is for the elephant nature park, btw :) Both are based on sketches I did while in Vietnam. It feels great to finally put them down on giant pieces of watercolor paper.
Just to keep my mad skillz up, I'm going to draw a tree a day.
It's like my meditation. I sort of lose myself to the process of drawing curves & shading. My mind goes blank. My hands & heart are directly connected. Up close the drawing looks like a big jumbled mess, but when I step away, somehow it all makes sense. It's lovely. You should try it!
