First one in Willie's Mole, Dale and Sam

If anyone knows Detroit, this is down near Eastern Market--it was a few years go. The bundle under the bridge is Dale's belongings. Now it is my understanding they made a walking trail there, so where is DALE? Where is he living? It's cold in Detroit in the winter--and hot in the summer.

Pen and ink and water color.

I really like the urban feeling of this one.

Love the fuzzed-out, moderate bleed of the lines here. I'm on another marker-wash kick myself. I try to remember do at least one per exchange book. I like that technique a lot. Never tried it with watercolor tho? Your version tempts me. I just might!

Thanks Aya and Hennie! Woohoo!

This is Detroit! (Or one part of it!)

I love doing the bleed technique with water color, and for urban stuff, of the dirty gritty variety, it wrks great.
