More doodles..
I can't emphasize enough to students the value of simply doodling. So often we (I include myself) hesitate to draw or paint because of a recent frustration with our art. By doodling pointless shapes and objects with no goal in mind you get some practice without fear of failure. Here and there something cool happens on the page that you might not have been brave enough to try on a "real" piece.

I scanned the BW drawing and then went back and applied WC, again just fooling around.

wonderful doodles. Do you use a specific pen? Is it a dip pen?
