If You Build It They Will Come - In Droves

These are a very familiar sight around my county, thanks to the corrupt county politicians. I think I will try to do a series of the construction equipment in use around our once sparsely populated county. This one was sort of fun as I am experimenting with watercolor on ink. So this was done with black India ink using a 00 Koh-i-Noor Rapidograph and colored with water colors from my home made water color set.

Like your style! I'm trying to do something similar! The topic is good too! Sketching with a political edge!!

I've just set up this site:

I love this, it´s fun to draw machinery and technical things. You did a great job on the traffic lights too, I really like the unfinished "sketchy" quality of that one. Very beautiful.

Nice drawing. I like the way you feel free to go beyond your ink lines with your color.
