Ball Of Wool - 21

My aim today was to reach my head with sky..(sounds like a Jimmy Hendrix lyric!)..they way my head is just now it is quite appropriate.No I'm not talking illicit substances..I do not use anything more dangerous than Bourbon or a good Merlot...although you'll not believe when I tell you I have yet to discover the wonders of Absinthe although devilmood has warned me off once some time ago.

I shall now be off to deepen the colours of the sky...base layer of blue followed by purple then dark blue...the progress of the blue has taken a few hours today..I'm enjoying the little wispy bits of cloud below the main bulk of blueness.When I started this picture, I had a fairly good idea of what I wanted, but I no idea what it would turn out like..sometimes it seems to be drawing itself!

It is! Drawing itself, I mean. Don't doubt that. I feel like that about my characters too.

I love blue!
