night shoreline


Drawing and painting after dark. I can see the shoreline, and the lights far across the bay. I know where colors are in my tiny palette, but I can't judge mixes. So I let go of specific visual details and try to convey shape, edge, and feeling. I mark the page with my fountain pen first, and then ignore it... using ink, gouache, and then paint marker.
