Back by popular demand. My quirky art process so here is a WIP thread.
First I start with a photo that I have taken.
Then I play around with card board corners that I made until I find a composition that intrigues me.
Then I do a pencil sketch. Sometimes it will be really tight if I think it needs it. Usually it is pretty loose just to get the shapes and composition correct.
Then I add the ink. I use the dropper from the bottle top to apply the ink. While the ink is still wet I roll bottles through it, a stick, a mayonnaise jar top or what ever else I have handy.
Next is the first layer of watercolor. This is to start getting the flow of the piece don. General colors in place and start tying it together. I'll do about four watercolor layers.
I'll post more as I get more done.

A little further along. It takes forever to dry in this humidity. And I'm not motivated enough to pull out the hair dryer and speed things up.
I was hit up at wetcanvas to be a guide in the abstract/contemporary forum. Basically I act like a host. I also keep my eye out for trouble makers. So watch out troublemakers, I have my eye on you ;-[
