For Mother’s Day, all I wanted was to go to the Sacramento Zoo and draw animals. I used a technique I learned 14 years ago from a workshop at the same zoo given by artist Robert Dvorak. I started with a Bic Grip gel pen (black fine point). Then I used a waterbrush to wash the water-soluble ink into the dark or shaded areas. I really like this effect.
