When I was in art school learning about ink drawing, I chose this picture to work on learning about how the strokes where made. Below is my attempt to copying this picture. I saw that proportion is an area that needs work.

This was a great exercise of learning how to draw with ink and drawing. It was not that easy but I am willing to try this again with other master artists.

All of these watercolors were painted on Arches Cold Press Paper, 100% cotton, 140LB. I find that the Arches is the best, high quality paper that is great for layering colors, water control and keeps the colors looking fresh and bright.

I use a scanner to transfer the watercolor into the computer and with Photoshop, I clean up the watercolor, brighten the colors.

Some of the watercolor brands that I use are Winsor and Newton Professional watercolor, Holbein Artists Watercolor and Sennelier. My favorite are the Winsor and Newton as their colors are more thicker and I have better water control with them. the Sennelier are more transparent and need I have a harder time building the colors up.
