Fractured Glass 2: Step 2 - Winsor Newton Davy's Gray and Daniel Smith #3 Brush

This should look just the first step of Fractured Glass 2 because it is.  I pick up a paintbrush after the pencil lines are in place, and set the design with Winsor Newton Davy's Gray, a very light gray  watercolor.

In the earliest nanoscapes, I used Winsor Newton Sepia, which has a darker character and is staining (a painter's word for either delightfully or annoyingly permanent) or Daniel Smith Sepia, which is unabashedly brown.  I also experimented with Daniel Smith Payne's Gray, which was too dark for the nanoscapes' framework.
