A good line…or two

The previous owner of the barn where I board my horse stopped in yesterday to say hi.

ME: You look GOOD!

HIM: (after a sly pause) I’ll pay you later.

ME: (with a sly smile) I don’t come cheap.

HIM: (with wicked smile) I’ve heard you don’t come cheap.


Anyhow, those weren’t exactly the lines I had in mind before yesterday, but rather these. The background for Sky Pads 32 finally “evaporated” its paint thinner medium enough for me to draw on it. So here’s what the game plan looks like now.

Sky Pads 32 with Tombow water soluble ink drawing over poured paint background.

I was thinking about using a fixative to hold the background in place because it’s not quite dry enough yet to paint over it. But then I decided to leave things as they are for the moment because the fixative might “fix” things that didn’t need to be fixed. We’ll see how it goes in the next few days.
