Working with Scraps

Last year I started playing around with scraps of canvas in an attempt to see what layering different colors (sometimes mixed with media) over others would do. Well, I'm taking one of them a step further!

I've got charcoal pencil rubbed in (with varying degrees of thickness) and then some quinacridone violet painted on directly and also mixed in with the charcoal. Later I added someo quinacridone violet with soft gel (semi gloss) and then went back in for one more round with straight tube color violet.

I don't know what I'll do from here; perhaps I'll do a bunch of these and then stitch them together, lobotomy style!

P.S., the other swatch underneath it is c.p. cadmium hue with titanium white mixed in painted over a blue color that I forgot to document.
