I wish spring were a WIP *
When I started this, the image and the cold weather had me convinced I was saving some of the crocus blossom shapes for intense yellow, at least something springy and intense to contrast with the myriad of grays I'm having fun mixing. But along the way, just a drop of the quin.burnt orange got in there, and I liked its unexpected contrast to the grays. Crocus color would have just been . . . normal. I'm also trying to break up the crocus blossoms as I go, to make it less literal, and for the same reason, I'm thinking that I don't really want the bright colors to be in the blossom shapes.
* hard to imagine spring lurking anywhere in the vicinity. How are YOUR heating bills looking? Got your long underwear on? I do!
