I hesitate to call these drawings; they contain mostly pencil, ink and watercolor – maybe they would be better categorized as mixed media. For these three I began each with very faint pencil lines and/or some watercolor washes, followed by ink and/or charcoal to define lines and add weight. The overall compositions happen organically, an element inserted in a certain place is balanced by another. Once the composition and outlines are complete colored pencil and/or gouache fill in some of the shapes. Patterns and details in ink are scattered throughout during the whole process, sometimes painted over.
