As I said, I am really enjoying slowing down and being interested in the outcome of
the people I am drawing, instead of rushing the challenge just to reach 100 people.

I love Troublemaker Inks as well, though I could not use them in the drawings —
I needed waterproof inks.

I have only one of their lovely inks, and am on a waiting list for others… Such gorgeous inks!

I began drawing the men with light
guidelines, then inked with Super5 Frankfurt.  I used the same ink in a waterbrush to add some shading before I used watercolors.
There is something I have to get used to about watercolors on the Bamboo paper — they sit on top of it a bit more than on other Hahnemühle papers.  I’ve only watercolored a half-dozen or so, and it may be that I am not as fond of the paper, or that I need practice.
