Drawings in my sketchbook spurred me to a new series in process now. Working on silk coated with Magic Sizing, and using a brush with very little dye, I can work with a linear quality I usually find in my pencil drawings.
After adding my silk dye, I tried to add a bit of texture with some salt, with little result on this painting. My next stage will be some shadowing on the trees. This painting is looking a bit underfinished to me, but I do like the direction it is heading.
