Urban Renewal

This is the latest in the experiments on Rives BFK printmaking paper.  Once again I started with a pencil drawing and then a wet-into-wet watercolor wash using pastel colors, followed by watercolor glazes over the wash in the abstract areas created by the drawing.  I finished with some linear accents using Prismacolor watercolor pencils. Lots of fun doing these and the printmaking paper is amazingly easy to use with watercolor.
