Getting close to finishing the mini ebook tutorial, thanks for your patience! Here is a recent value study for a stormy cliff composition. Perhaps a French sailing barge grounded with crew looking on, dwarfed by the scale of the crumbling precipice above.

Gouache on gray canson paper, dip pen loaded with diluted watercolor and gouache, touches of pastel pencil. 6x10 inches.

Winsor & Newton extra large full pan watercolors with M.Graham Chinese white was used. 9x12 Montval watercolor block paper and small amounts of sepia pen & ink work added at the end as well.
