And then it looked like candy

“A person's life consists of a collection of events, the last of which could also change the meaning of the whole, not because it counts more than the previous ones but because once they are included in a life, events are arranged in an order that is not chronological but, rather, corresponds to an inner architecture.”
Italo Calvino

Clairefontaine watercolor paper, pencil, gouache

I'm loving this whole gouache escapade. When I drew the ogees in pencil {usually I don't work in pencil} I really didn't like them! They looked dorky. But then I figured I might as well use the good paper, so I started painting. And then I started adding patterns and shapes. And then it looked like candy.
