the primitive king of colour


More is not better.
Desperation sees 24 heads knocked out in ink to break a logjam in my thinking. 
But volume and speed did not throw me a variable I could use.
The truth is that the hand & mind are a lazy combo,
they just keep on producing out the same old material.
'this will do'
This will not do.
Something needs a good kicking,
do not tolerate laziness.

I found some red ochre printing ink in a drawer today,
perhaps some fierce monoprints will move the goalposts
and red oxide is the primitive king of colours, it will not let me down
