Now I can move on.  Tomorrow I return to painting in oil using my latest color wheel of neutrals in three values.  Yes, I know…. it’s Thanksgiving Day.  That doesn’t mean I won’t be painting.  I’ll make the bread dough first so the bread won’t taste like turpentine.

Sketch: Drawn first with fountain pen followed by washes of watercolor.
