Media used: gesso, watercolor (background), acrylic paint, india ink
^This is the very first attempt (for lack of a better word). I got critiqued for the road, as it didn't really fit with my Fletcher color scheme, and the ink just kind of looked weird.
Mr. Wertz suggested I gesso the road out and use charcoal on it, so I did, and that is what you see below.
I think it looks better with the charcoal.
And here is my finished product, matted and fancy-looking.
