summer into winter

Continued through the summer and fall to draw for a week or so before painting, and then in the later fall to draw directly with paint, generally working for one or two sessions. So I was able to try out one approach after another, and settled into drawing through several stages in one night, an initial drawing using a light violet/gray, then blocking in dark values, redrawing again in red and then to get contrast in immediately, again with black. Then the second session, begin by redrawing and move into color.
