boxes and comb


Four boxes (three of cloth, one of clay) and a wooden comb sit on one end of my bureau. I was working with water-soluble oil pastels and ink tonight. The oil pastels go on much softer than the watercolor crayons, but don't move as far with water. Fewer colors in my set, so my choices are based on value as much as hue. (That and the strong incandescent cast of light in the bedroom affected my color blends and combinations.)

I'm drawn to the intermix of colors on the baskets, and just as much to the pure aqua on the little pot. A vivid piece!

I really love the colors in this drawing. Fabulous!
