Found: something I wasn't looking for
Was looking for some textile inks and bumped into a painting-storage case and couldn't resist taking a peek. Here's a 5"x7" sketch I did from a saved calendar or National Geographic magazine some years back. I'd forgotten about it, but really like the pale pinks and lavenders. Can you detect some equally-pale spattering here and there in it? That's a technique I'm typically too timid to use - it adds an amount of "casualness" to a picture and involves the potential for disaster that I mostly prefer to avoid!
