sweet november

So, like I was saying, I was pretty busy last week, finally invested in drawing and painting.

The initial wash in India ink seemed drab,
 so I threw a wash of purply violet over it and that seemed just right.

Again, I wasn't satisfied with the first background, a yellowy ochre,
so I lay down a repetitive pattern in green and khaki
but still there was something missing til I washed the khaki over in blotchy pools,
daubing it up in places with a crumpled tissue. There, that worked.
More tomorrow.
A  sweet November to us all
