Got My Eye On You

This started out as a sketch, experimenting with color and shape. Really just doodling. But I like it. I like the texture of the partially wiped background and the sketchiness of it. Almost like a watercolor approach. I would like to experiment with a larger painting using layers and washes of transparent color like this.

I think this looks like someone observing a secret world through this tiny little window - maybe a window to the soul.
