Call It Mixed Media?

Some call this mixed media because it combines watercolor, gouache, colored pencils and fountain pens. 

I don't think of it that way. To me it's all about one thing: putting pigment on paper.

At  each stage of the sketch, the pigment goes down whichever way is most efficient. Some touches are wet, broad, and blurry, and some are dry, sharp and dry. 

Call it drawing and painting if you want, but to me it's just laying down pigment. 

What I was focused on was the sunlight setting just to the left of the alley.
