I feel like I am cheating with this challenge in that my drawings usually begin with ink then watercolor is applied — though sometimes more ink is applied — hell, I dunno. Feels like cheating not to do a separate drawing specially for Inktober but I am low on time. Drawing daily is enough, in ink, and I also running a challenge for virtual sketching!
Most of these drawings were from photographs I took — so virtual sketching!

Such a tough statue. Crystal. I’ve tried this several times and I never am satisfied.
The history of the statue is that it was given to me by the Padre, a dear priest and family friend.

I remembered how much I loved the Virgin Mother and brought her out to sit on my altar.
