There are few things I enjoy more than painting musicians as they perform. Here is a watercolor and ink painting of Diego Garcia. It was created as he played tonight’s De Cafe session at the The Perkins Center for the Arts.

fantastic-crafts said: May I ask a question about your process? I'm wondering if you begin with ink drawing or with watercolor? I'm a huge fan. HUGE!

Thank you so much! Your comment has made my day.

Lately, I have been making a light sketch with watercolor pencil. I go over that with a drafting pen. Then I build color with a series of watercolor layers. Last, I add bold, black lines with an ink brush pen. Here’s a gif to illustrate the process.
