Near Miss

I slashed the paper with a razor and wet the it before I adding color to today’s study. While the paper was still wet, I made some blobs of yellow and used a dip pen to ink the outline them. The gash that I sliced into the paper interrupting the circular arc suggested an arrow. The rest of the composition designed itself as an abstract of the William Tell legend. My character was probably dropping to the ground as the arrow passed by. Also, I haven’t decided if Mr. Tell was targeting a banana or a yellow beret. At any rate, everyone is safe after the incident.
