Bird's Nest

Sometimes watercolors need a base of pen-and-ink to give them structure. That might give them a little more of an "illustration" feeling, but that's fun, too. I guess I'm drawn to pieces that have that botanical illustration feeling, with lots of white space. It reminds me of so many older books I've loved, in which naturalists made field studies using pen and ink and a small portable watercolor pallette.
