Two New Indigo Drawings

I continue to make drawings on Indigo backgrounds. I'm trying to take advantage of the last few temperate fall days we have in Chicago to dye a quantity of Arches watercolor paper. It is a messy process, I do it outside in our back courtyard, and I'm feeling productive if I get two sheets of paper colored to my satisfaction in one day. I like the series, I visit familiar motifs but the blue makes them feel fresh. At the same time I continue to look at the early Frank Stella paintings as a source of inquiry.
