I don’t think this one is finished yet, but I like how it looks so far. I keep wanting to see the word “fly” in here, and so I’m thinking I may add those letters in the light blue areas. This is roughly 5 1/2″ by 6 1/2″ on Arches 140-lb. cold-press paper:
I used only two colors on this one: M. Graham Phthalo Blue and Aureolin/Azo Yellow. I have fallen deeply in love with Phthalo and Prussian Blue! As wonderful as Ultramarine Blue is with the granulation and the wonderful darks that can be made with it, I’m loving even brighter and deeper blues right now. And I just love watching Phthalo Blue move around in water on the page. Does anyone else like watching these colors run around in water, or is it just me?

I hope everyone can smell the weekend round about now. 🙂 Peace.
