vase, again

Revisited the blue vase from last night, this time with watercolor crayon and no ink, laying the color onto the page thickly and then blending with the waterbrush. Trying to get at the intensity and glassiness of the color.

Last night I was so sleepy when I was drawing the vase that I actually began to fall asleep several times while making the picture. I would nod, and then jerk awake and continue drawing. I can remember beginning to write the date on the page, and deciding that the year was 825 - not sure why, and then I woke up and corrected it, although now I wish I hadn't. I like the watery-dreamy-sleepy feel of it as it is. The odd date would have been in the right spirit for the drawing.

I love the backstory! It's a good lesson in embracing our altered states, and embracing the funny little things that happen that we didn't plan for.

You captured the glass wonderfully! I love the intensity of the colors.
