Each medium requires you to think a little differently. Each has its particular virtues. Thus revisiting the same scene using different tools can offer sources of invention.

This drawing measures about 15 x 12.5 inches, drawn using neocolor1 crayons and colored pencils.

Sometimes the details suggest possibilities for new motifs.

I have a painting of the whole scene in the works, and I’ve been experimenting with a small painting of just the foreground shrubs — which have abstracted into variegated green ovals.

I suppose in time I will have come to know all these various ovals pretty well.
