Muted colors..

Today I worked with a large sheet of paper.....always a daunting task filled with danger.......I reworked this piece many times fearing I would repeat myself........trying to be open to new directions.

I think it is pretty successful.......using a foam brush in the last week or so has opened up the language of the prints a lot.  Prior to this I was mainly using a roller, sponge, and finger painting......which I think got a bit redundant.

Also I have been mixing color before applying it, which I was doing directly until recently.  I think the softer palate helps this piece and unifies the movement as there is no one dominant color to fix the eye in one place.
