Dart! This surprised me. It was like Ray Charles shot eye beams at me.
It's a great tradition to paint people skipping around in the woods. The theme of this piece was to use the hard pencil. Which I'm liking more than gradated tools. Me thinks it stems from oekaki days. I have a horrible feeling that's going to make a violent come back. The other theme was warm or cool or die. Mostly dying. . . this took me more than a days study. Which is too long for taste. . . add salt for taste.
