Clouds & Faces

Here are the next two pieces in my drawing series. The first one combines contrasting techniques of inky brush washes with pen hatches. The second drawing combines hatches with line and linear accents. I've got about 6 more drawings to complete my series, so I think I will work on at least a couple more today.

Wonderful! But now I'm curious: you said you have about six more to do to complete the series. Did you decide from the beginning how many there would be? and what basis did you use to come up with that number?

Raena, Yes I decided the number of drawings that would be in my series based on the number of paper sheets that are in my watercolor pad, which is 15. I thought that 15 was a good challenging number and dedicating one pad of paper to the series is a sure way to keep the dimensions and quality consistent.
