Otherlands Coffee Shop & Sketchbooks, PART 2

12" x  9" Canson Sketchbook        Lamy pen, water soluble ink, water brush 
In 2013, I was planning to sketch while traveling and was looking for ways to complete sketches more quickly.  Blending water soluble ink with the water brush was much quicker than cross hatching. The water brush, though, required me to use thicker paper, so I started trying out different types of sketch books.

I was missing strong lines, so I experimented with a combination of techniques.

When the paper was too thin to take water, I tried using gray markers.
