The Moleskine Journey – lightbulb moment

Something clicked here (even though there are proportion problems with the drawing).  This is almost entirely done with quinacridone gold and a mixture of ultramarine and burnt sienna for the darks.

The secret –  plenty of water and plenty of paint.   Let the stuff puddle on the surface of the paper and it will move around (or let you move it around) for a fair while.  

For the first time this felt closer to painting than fighting.
