Studying the a ref the great Pomodorosa pointed out. I actually saw her artbook in the store one night and thought I owed her a buy, and it's quite an inspiration.
I'm trying to loosen up and not focus on matching exactly...I dunno how off this theory is, but I feel like worrying about being exact is not long-term what I should be after. I want to capture the essence, the spirit of the piece. Also helpful, I'm using pen a lot recently, so it's forcing me to make decisions, and stop worrying.
What, me, worry?
