Yet more doodling

Yet another little painting on that old gesso panel.  Again - it is merely a bit of invention.  It isn't for anything.  I am just trying to see what the possibilities are with this way of working.

One thing that I have learnt is that this painting is much more luminous if the white of the gesso is shining through a relatively thin layer of paint.   Expensive acrylic paints (I'm using Golden here) are more transparent than cheap ones and richer in colour - and it shows in the hat in this picture.
