One thing led to another and three hours later... I tried grounding my palette by mixing most paints with Yellow Ochre and even using it as a pale wash over other colors. That's probably all for this piece--it is really an experiment with knots with stops and ends, as well as a watercolor exercise. I have an idea of using this border style with an illuminated letter and a bit of calligraphy, something with a cat quote. But for now, I will most likely poke around with a selection from The Celtic Design Book by Aidan Meehan.
