I used grisaille to shadow, but I used the Super5 Frankfurt ink in a water-brush, and didn’t get the brush loaded enough for the large areas so they are a bit smudgy.
It didn’t make a difference when I splashed on color later,
but it is something to remember — load even your water-brush with
enough wet wash in that screwy plastic holder.

I started a Facebook group page (you must join to view) to allow everyone to share their virtual sketches, and also where we will, from time to time, take virtual sketch walks together. Come join us On Facebook if you are inclined!
If you want to know more about what a virtual sketchwalk is review my first post.
There are a few more notes/pointers on our first walk through Laguna Beach, California.
