When my painting time is drained away by other necessities of life I have a difficult time sleeping.

 

A dark sketch on a sleepless night

 

I’ve been playing with fountain pen contour drawings with watercolor washes using only two colors, paynes gray and alizarin crimson from the vintage watercolor travel box.  My goal is to guide the eye through the sketch by lost and found edges between the lights and the darks.
