Back to another kind of thinking.

Working with the same palette that I used in my winter twins series that I completed last year around this time.  The recent snow brought me back to my minimalist tendencies. It's wonderful to think about all that stuff just under the surface that a crust of translucent frozen snow obscures. Some little bits break the surface and indicate their full form.

I guess the last few days have built up to a more is more drawing.

I enjoyed making the many layers of this image. Using more of the technique that i use in my non digital drawings — many layers using each to obliterate or obscure the layer below. Letting marks peek out between the spaces.

Another set of brushes and a refinement of the color palette.

I used some new patterns to create a new marks from familiar gestures.

I found these marks to be different than I had anticipated. They created different patterns with each small change. This was really good fun and didn't happen quite as fast as the final drawing appears.

Using some of the same marks that I have added to my toolkit.

I've also started creating my own color palette. Moving beyond the default swatches. Moving to a set of colors that I can use for a whole series of images before needing to change.
