Coffee in bed, fountain pen in hand filled with Nikita Red ink.  I felt in the mood to tackle the branches of the pine tree as well as the fence.

The fence was horribly tedious.  I have such little patience.  Regardless of my attempt to re-focus, my mind was on other things.  Later in the day I added washes of watercolor that turned out to be far too similar in value when they dried.  This morning I added another layer of watercolor making sure the value shapes were stronger.

The red ink bled a bit too much into the washes.  Oh well, there is always tomorrow.
