Peonies, Rocks and Water

Finished up the outline and got to some shading.  It's always a fun challenge to hook up to older work and make it all look good.  I really try to find a balance between doing the best new work I can while still matching the look of the previous piece.  
Kind of going for a waterfall like motion to the water...keeping it all fairly vertical.  I've tried a variety of different pens to draw on the skin, and lately I've been trying to use only brush pens.  They wipe off a bit easier but really help achieve a flow to the drawing that can't be matched.  Also their impermanence on the skin forces me to work much more fluidly and focused...
