New piece

I picked up a few more gouache colors and I wanted to try just using a couple in this piece. All these colors are W&N indigo and sepia (plus white and water, of course). Indigo comes out of the tube so dark that I didn't lighten it up as much as I could have so this is a little more contrast-y than most of my pieces lately.

The drawing is a little disproportionate to make the yarn-winding hand come forward a little more but I'm not sure it comes across right :) It's the same size - 11x14" on hot press watercolor paper. I should mix up my sizes a little bit more but I always try to cut as many pieces out of a big sheet as possible and they just divide up so tidy this way.
