This dates from June this year. I was working all the details in shades of grey before adding colour.
I have been lost, trying new paths every day, for months on end. At last around Easter something happened, a real breakthrough. Since then I have still been exploring new paths, but I think it is more focused. The "shades of grey" phase lasted a little while, then I moved on, but I have the feeling it is part of a progression, everything I have been trying seems to fall into place like a puzzle that starts to make sense.
