I drew using a combination of contour and gesture drawing styles with a bold Unibal- Signo gel pen that is responsive to pressure and water fast after it dries. For color I began with transparent watercolor and then when it came time to add the darker values, I switched to gouache. I often have trouble going dark enough and the opacity of the gouache helped me out. Combining the two types of watercolor felt very natural and I may explore using them together more in the coming weeks.
I sketched in a 9 X 12 inch Canson mix media sketchbook.
