image009Stayed here late last night working on the wave. Became discouraged with the colors. Seems I wrecked the drawing. Came in this morning and added more touches. Will try to buy some more colors today–grey or silver. The pastels are expensive, but seem to last awhile.

Put in some highlights on the water. Adjusted the curl. It needs to have a silvery feel that I cant seem to create. I wonder if Monet became frustrated with all those haystacks.

Decided to throw it away and try one more time. The colors are awful. It’s become muddy.

Here it is today…
