|pencil sketch draft 4B on Aquabee 93#|
After choosing my focal point and editing out some extra umbrella tables, I began the sketch with a Staedtler 0.1 fine tip pen. Suddenly the construction noise began indicating the crane was going to re-positioned. When it ended up like this, I quickly sketched it with the fine tip ink pen before it moved again. Challenges were to not overdraw the support structure.

I finished the sketch in ink, trying to use line and contrast to draw the eye to Mrs.Cook's. I added watercolor splashes with more intense color at my focal point. Challenges were to not overpaint.
I added a few highlights with Uniball, PITT artist pen and few touches of intense color highlights when I got home. I was dressed for cold, but my finger tips were numb after two hours outside.
