Not sure if I want to do this as a pen-and-ink sketch or do light watercolour washes. We’ll see how I’m feeling about it once I’ve finished with the pencil.

The Stillman & Birn Alpha sketchbook paper is meant for light washes, but it’s just a bit too light for what I’m doing here and tends to buckle.
