Finished this sketchbook drawing. While primarily using it as an ongoing morning warmup and coffee break drawing, there are some reasons behind it:
– it’s inspired by a trip to a quaint (and touristy) West Virginian town in the Shenandoah foothills along the Potomac River. The snow capped mountains in the background are just because I love mountains.
– I wanted to draw without using black outlines, which have been a visual crutch of mine, instead focusing on drawing purely in color, and completely filling the page with rich, juicy color.
– It gave me a reason to buy and use Stabilo Fineliner markers.
