This is the first of the squares, I will call it 1a, all I do is thicken or thin the lines to make a rough sketch or formulation of an idea of what it might turn out to be, there is no real "eureka" moment here, this is just a process. Then I add more lines!
Now, to add color, I just block in the areas with color, This will probably look like a watercolour when I am done, that is the feeling I get from it, so I go with that, I start blending the shapes, and shadows, and will add highlights later. And maybe a background, depends on what this turns out to be! "maybe a squirrel lives here"
I start to blend the colors into the lines to get an idea of the outcome for the shapes, molding the medium into various areas, and blending it with others, sometimes, I obliverate the lines, and sometimes not.
