Somewhere around #6 I got really really sick of Mardi Gras, so I rooted around my stack of paper and found a drawing I had done way back in the fall of a campfire scene.
So I painted it.
Notice all the humans! I was so brave. They actually look like people, too. [Always a good thing!]
This one is a limited palette study in indigo, raw umber and burnt sienna. It was so nice to use other colors. Plus, I adore painting fire and smoke. I had a lot of fun with this one and once I was done I was ready to tackle Mardi Gras again.
Up next: A series of winter farms and white houses. I thought I'd take advantage of winter light and muted colors while they're here. More limited palettes, but spring will come soon enough and then I can use all the colors again.
