Lighthouse - Pen and Ink w/Watercolor

I'm definitely on a roll these days with my sketching and loving it!!!!  Here soon I'll not have access to my computer and other activities may actually slow me down a bit so I'm taking advantage while I can. 

You may be able to read my notes but in case not.............I chose to do this for practice with cylinder shapes and ellipses.  An area I struggle with getting onto paper correctly.

I 'could' bring out the ruler and do the box and vanishing point exercise to get the ellipses proportioned correctly but that's the last thing I want to do.  It's my wish to be able to do so by eye-balling so not to have to stop and do all that measuring.  That just takes away the fun and spontaneous aspect of sketching (at least for me).

Keeping water to a minimum, I was able to apply a light wash of color without it bleeding through the paper.

This one was using the Noodler's Flex (original) and Black ink.  Again no pencil forcing myself to really concentrate on shapes and lines as I worked this.
