Small Seal Script Continued

Practice

The Small Seal Script series isn't working out as well as I had hoped. Finished one but lost my immediate enthusiasm for completing a series of six for the summer. Maybe I need for someone to see them. The scale is not that small at 36 X 36. Why does it seems so terribly small? Why do I long for the large canvas? What vanity is at work here? The first one, Practice, is a lovely, friendly altogether accessible blue. I thought to stay in that palette but no, some painting demon took control and the second, Poetry, turned black. Which lurks on the wall unfinished and unloved beside its bright and congenial brother.
