had to bring this canvas indoors last night to escape the ravages of Earl. it was a non-event, just rain, good thing i brought it in. i took this opportunity to work for a bit under incandescent light, and low light. and started again. i like the pentimento and heed the advice that some pigments placed over a layer of ivory black may curdle. i'm making this up as i go along, so who knows what the finished work will be, i surely don't. not even an intimation, other than there will be figures.
