My fingers were itchy to work on a large abstract on paper — there’s a delicious freedom that comes with getting out my fat, water-soluble graphite crayon and bottle of India ink and baskets of watercolor tubes and working into a large sheet of blank watercolor paper. Layers of paint go on with big brushes, and I love the large chunks of color contrasted with the staccato pencil marks. It is a joy to express myself without constraint.
