I thought the mauve would be a good contrast to the earth-tone background. I used transparent, iron-based pigments.  Looking back on the past several paintings, it seems I have a tendency to lay down my colors in ‘S’-shaped strokes. I’ll have to look into that.

Once again I used compressed air (and gravity) to move the pigments around. I painted in a lemon yellow amidst the purple strands, for maximal contrast.
