Left: Pentel Aquash pen sketch with gouache washes on strips of Strathmore 500 Series Mixed Media paper that were then stuck down on a pre-painted page in a 9 x 12 inch Fabriano Venezia journal. Click on the image to view an enlargement. (That's the ribbon page marker bound into the journal—it got captured on the scanning surface.)
I ran out of space on these scraps so I continued the painting once I stuck the image down. I used a heavier application with the gouache layers in this image than the one shown yesterday. Sometimes I just like to push the paint around more, or hide the pen strokes.
