This took me two days to ink. Yesterday, I stopped with the foliage about 2/3 done. I hadn’t quite decided how to finish the lower right corner and the background trees and didn’t want to overdo it.
The studio is stuccoed so there won’t be much texture until I color it. The azaleas were in bloom so there will be lots of red, pink and white flowers. I am pretty happy with the positive/negative balance, although I may add a small amount more in the lower right quadrant. I am still up min the air as to whether I will use the watercolors or the pastels. I have to decide for both studios now, so it is a bigger decision than normal. The pastels will be a richer, deeper color and the watercolors more light and airy. Suggestions?
