Prompt: Out of a jar
prompted by: katerina Koukiotis, during Sketch Fest #51 (May, 2014)

This artist has posted at least one finished version of this piece!

Graphite and watercolor on some hot press arches 4x4 paper I bought from Ellen a long time ago... In progress!! Posting at 45 minutes b/c now it needs to dry and smallHuman needs breakfast... by the way, I do NOT know how to apply alcohol -- that circle -- *not* my plan. We'll see if there's any help from the salt... that's not looking good either... Oh well! Live and learn!

     Kir Talmage replied to this: Thank you! The salt helped with the alcohol oops a little. I've got some shadows layered in. Now to decide what color those tentacles should really be .. greenish? reddish? Leaning towards red and a brown jar with parchment label... but is that enough contrast? Dilemmas! Suggestions welcome!

     Kir Talmage replied to this: I seem to often find your prompts inspiring! **grin** Now debating next layers of colors (see comment above...) Advice welcome!

Tera Callihan says: I think Either color scheme sounds great!I'm glad the salt helped :-) ~ Reply?

     Kir Talmage replied to this: Reddish tentacles! Lots of brown! Tiny hints of purple or blue (even tinier) or green (yeah, not. Or blended it). I think I'm **almost** done.... I think its title has changed too.... its drying (again) so I guess honestly this is just me cruelly teasing people. Um. .... um... Am I?
