Brush with a Polar Bear

This water based ink drawing was over brushed with water to soften the lines and add gradation, a fast technique I like for sketching from life. You get a few gestural lines in and shade them out or you can lay down more ink with the intention of creating deeper tones. The tones went much darker than I intended but I am pleased the backlit look is retained. The sketch is from an iPhone photo reference (viewed directly on the phone).
