Another of Kurt's 35 year old pictures. I recall doing maybe half a dozen of vaguely the same picture in different styles, colors and methods. My brother had a couple, a nice blue one, long ago traded away for a six-pack of cheap beer. This is another large picture (see the double-click), done with a stick dipped in brown india ink. Some of the wash is ink, some is a watercolor wash after the ink had set up a little. Watercolor is can be hard, painting with ink is a real bitch. Which of course is reason enough to do it.
