Above: Quick sketch on Strathmore 500 Series Mixed Media paper (an 11 x 14 inch journal, so this is about 11 inches wide at the bottom of a page—which doesn't fit on my scanner). Click on the image to view the enlargement.
(Listed in order)
Pentel Aquash brush pen with light black ink.
Schmincke Gouache with a 1/2 inch flat.
Montana Marker with shock pink ink. (I discovered in April that I love pink.)
A little bit of touch up with more gouache.
Pentel Pocket brush pen (for final contrast at nose and eye because I didn't have my regular colors to mix blacks on my palette).
I really enjoy sketching on this paper.
