Day 1398: Doesn't look like anything would pass code?

"old days", collage, photo & digital

I am actually ahead of schedule, for a change!
Another round-robin journal spread, 
on 8-1/2 x 11" heavy watercolor paper to 
finish and mail on by the end of the month. 
And so, to share, another step-by-step.


I started with acrylics spread on a celadon base.

step 2

Uncertain, I started adding black gesso in an irregular grid.

step 3

I started to see buildings so just went with it.

step 4

I wanted to add collage, here and there.
I thought it was done, but ...
when I looked at it on screen ... not quite.

step 5

The addition is subtle, but I think necessary.
Doesn't look like anything would pass code?
But, I like the colors.

A smile for Tuesday ...
