The watercolored water and terrain is so organic. The white masked hexagon pattern underlay has been so carefully executed, it really creates a third dymanic to the piece. The thin, crisp black ink outline distinguishes that map.
Coloured pencils have been utilised here as a device for rendering. The colour not only developed the perspective of the sketch, but establishes context and mode through colour and tone. The technique used here is light shading and blending.
