"SketchCrawlin' With Nancy"

At great risk to my reputation as a "fine" artist (cough, cough, choke), I'm posting this sketch of Nancy sketching because it's my first India Ink (and a bit of watercolor) image. Never used this stuff before and I think I have miles to go before I sleep. Help? Anyone?

I really like the urban feel of this. You managed an amazing variety of depth and mood from the single black. I love the touch of red - really snaps it.

Thanks, Bobi, that's more than I was expecting from what looks like a mess to me.

The placement of the figure on the page, the position of the horizon line, the pop of red (even a touch of it on her boot heel)... very well done!
