From a pencil sketch...... to a watercolor painting and beyond...
Most of the work I do starts pretty traditionally....with a pencil in hand and let the ideas flow....something good is going to happen...;-)
Design from Nature
I have learned over the years that inspiration can come from many different directions...you just need to be open to it and let it happen. Sometimes I start with a sketch...take it into my computer and with my Wacom tablet rework it until I am happy.
Layout and designing the piece sometimes just works itself out.
