Doorway abstract

The mid-tone was a muddy brown.  On top, I added thicker brush strokes of umber, purple blue, lavender, etc.  It all looked muddy and confused, so I added parallel passages in viridian green and very high value viridian.  The result was something vaguely like a door, leading out of this muddy mess.
