Lo and Behold.......... my wish came true :-) I received an email alerting me that Craftsy was offering a course by Steven Reddy and I immediately jumped on it. What a fantastic course beautifully presented and extremely informative. By far my favorite of the courses I've taken to date :-)
Craftsy - Steven Reddy - Dynamic Detail in Pen, Ink, and Watercolor
Now I'm hoping he can offer another course showing how he goes about working landscapes and buildings !!!!!
The one item I didn't have on hand was India Ink he uses so I had to improvise by using Noodler's Black ink. I'm really curious to see how the India Ink differs when added to water for making up different value solutions. The Noodler's ink settles quickly to the bottom of the water with one having to stir or shake it several times throughout the process to obtain the value in which the solution was created to achieve. In any event, I still ended up with a water proof diluted ink mix and made it work for these exercises.
