Under the Door

Watercolor pencil has, among its many other virtues, the benefit of needing to dry after you’ve wetted it, and therefore being a very useful medium to work with in an alternating pattern with some other pursuit. Say, for example, you’re trying to memorize which of twenty-five different types of suture materials are absorbable (and how quickly they’re absorbed under what circumstances and therefore what types of surgeries they’re best for), and this is so boring it’s threatening to cause you to fade into nonexistence — the solution to this dilemma is to work a bit on a picture, then study while it dries, then work on the picture again, and so on.

The long and short of this is that I’ve drawn several pictures in the middle of studying over the last couple of months, and from “several” must (and did) come at least one I like enough to post!
