VSW: Oaxaca, 2

When sketches go wrong… blobs from a bad pen!
*how to “fix”?  add more blobs… then smear… oops*

I feel good about the looseness of these sketches.
I put the brush between my teeth to get me to play fast and loose!
*kidding… but maybe some days i should*

I love the bright yellow circle as a design element for the cactus divider.

The statue in the museum comes to life.
*not only did the pen leak, but it smudged despite half-hour drying*

I’m happy with this wonky page!
Loose, color ties together, nice design element…
