Temple of the Great Fish WIP, and some sketchbook morsels

So, working on the Fish Temple piece. Doing it in watercolors and pen&ink. Hoping this one turns out OK, still perfecting this methof working. Basically, I printed out the sketch very lightly onto watercolor paper, and then I out down the base tones, then do a layer of line-work, then some more watercolor to pop out details and shadows, then highlights, but I am trying NOT to add highlights, but rather think about them ahead of time and just leave white space which is what you are supposed to do with watercolor.... so I hear.

Then a couple sketches from the sketchbook.
