EoTD: On Little Cat Feet

Yesterday was cold and rainy and overcast and ick. This morning when I woke up, it was overcast and cool. Oh great, I thought. Perfect day for a "grey" look. And now it's bright and sunny and festive. Meh.

The fog comes
on little cat feet.

It sits looking
over harbor and city
on silent haunches
and then moves on.

My mom read this poem to me when I was about 4 or 5, and that first bit has stuck with me.

This is almost a "smoky-eye" look. Part of the One Year Eyecolor Challenge (new colors used: 4)

I applied Dove halfway over Steel, to try and soften the lines a bit; but Steel is just a very dramatic color. By applying a wash of With Arms Wide Open over Steel, I both lightened and softened the black to a deep blued grey.
