Somewhere in Holland there's a city street on a canal that has what looks like a blue apartment building with yellow window and door casings. and a red orange roof. It must be a notable tourist attraction for I found the reference photo in a Tauck tour publication. The colors got me. I tore the photo out and used it to further explore pastels as a sketching medium. I definitely need to renew my supplies, but the texture of my paper is fine. I could use more grayed down colors. This drawing is garish--too primary. I seem to be out of whack these days. I haven't a clue why. Makes me sad. I think I'll give this up till tranquility returns to my household. I say that, but I won't be able to. I need to make my marks to keep myself myself.
