Map of Western Refractoria: finished (I think)





So the map is done. I put a thin ink wash over the watery areas. I'm 99% sure I'm done though I may let it linger on the board through the weekend to see is something else doesn't need to be added. This is--by my estimate--the first large-scale drawing I've finished in about two years. Wow. Not much finished work for being in the studio on an almost daily basis.

Yeah man, I followed the progress of your last big drawing, but haven't been by in a little while... That drawing was amazing as well, but I think, for me, this one tops it...

Awesome! So...what media is this, precisely? Some kind of ink on some kind of canvas?
