So glad I made this sketch crawl. I try to find views that offer a distinct fore- mid- and background. I found the perfect spot in the shade that had all three. Although I didn't have time to apply any color (I rarely do, as I take way more than two hours to finish) on site, I managed to get pretty far. I also remembered how quickly my ink washes dry in this heat and kept them in my satchel in the shade under the picnic bench until I needed them.
By the way, I launched my Kickstarter campaign for my second book today! I hope you'll take a gander at the short video at the link below and share it with your friends. Thanks!
