In turns prehistoric, whimsical, stark, poetic...how large a piece is it?

To my un(der)educated eye, I would say this seems like if not a departure, then at least a pivot from the rest of your work, where it's been. There seems to be a real sense of direction here. I don't know if that's right, and then of course there's the worry that I'm implying the rest has no direction (I mean no such thing). Ah, critiquing is fun...

It's 24" x 36" I believe. A standard sheet of watercolor paper.

Is it in watercolours? Or diluted inks? Yup ... abit of a departure from what we've seen of late ... But love it non-the-less.

And am loving the polaroids!

I'm working only with India ink, brushes and pen "nibs"? (Is that what I would call them.) So the variation in tone is dilution, yes. Oh, I am also using a little white acrylic paint if I want those highlights but didn't think to mask them in the first place.
