Oh Happy Day!

It finally got up to 75°F (24°C) today which is about the coolest temp I dare to pour my paint backgrounds for Sky Pads (this one is #28). The cooler it gets, the less the paint wants to separate out into patterns, and I want patterns. It was also a bit windy today, so while the paint was drying various critters and leaf litter floated onto the scene. The signs of their presence will stay there, as it’s my home-made rule not to change anything even if I don’t care for it.

So here’s the poured background and the drawing which will go over it as soon as it’s dry enough to take a light pen drawing without smearing. The drawing took me forever, so it was good that I did it while I had plenty of time waiting for this first good outdoor day. We’ll see how I feel about painting the drawing’s complexity as we go along. I’ll let you all imagine how the two will fit together. I looked at the canvas right side up and upside down and decided that the way I’ve published it is the way it will be. Probably.
