Dreaming Woman

Tombow marker and black ink on watercolor paper, about 8"x12".

I'm just starting to play again with markers, ink and brush--and I am enjoying the experimentation. I like the colors bleeding from the top of the figure, giving some sense of motion and life.

Drawn from life, Wednesday morning.

"Calm Heart 2" is Tombow marker on smoother watercolor paper, about 7"x12".
