"Breathe life into me
Spin me round
And I'll just sit and wonder why
Just a foreign town with a foreign mind
Why is everything so cut and dried?

The taste of country air you'll never know

Gentlemen take polaroids
They fall in love they fall in love"

Now I've never fancied myself particularly skilled with Watercolours (I enjoy the bit of controlled chaos that they afford me) because I can study all sorts of value systems and nothing.ever.sticks. But enough about me, what do you want to know about me?

Really, I'm kidding. It isn't a basis for comparison that I'm recognizing such skill, its the aspiring afterglow you're leaving me with here. The preservation of whites is stunning, but the greater elegance is the concentration points of blue that demand the viewer's attention. Of course chaos loves water, but the blemishes (for lack of a better term) that make up the collar-cloth & hair are delightful! Accidental or intentionally, your working-technique is breath taking. This medium suits you very well.
