After a night of color wheels dominating my dreams, the primary and secondary colors escaped, disguised as rectangles woven together.

Disguised as Rectangles

What a relief.

My intention was to draw a montage of my backyard in the morning light.  Obviously my roller tip fountain pen had other ideas.  As the shapes were appearing, the idea of leaving them as shapes of solid color, interwoven by a strip of a complementary color, solidified.  I worked front to back through the color spectrum, yellow to purple, allowing the purple to unite the shapes by weaving through the yellow.

Drawn first with roller tip fountain pen followed by watercolor washes.
