I sketched this little girl the other night and really took my time in thinking how I'd paint her up. I got started and things were going so well until I speared black on her white translucent wing and had to change them up a bit. Then..........JUST as I was putting finishing touches on her, she got a HUGE black smudge on her face! I took the end of my paintbrush and dabbed spots on the bee's antennae and somehow my sleeve caught it before it dried, smearing them and landing on her face :( Grrrrrrrrrrr
This is the point where the heart stickers (bandaids) came into play. Since this is in my art journal, there was no way of really correcting the smudges. I tried but they got worse and the paper started to tear away.
Oh well, lesson learned. PATIENCE, Darla............patience!
Happy Ground Hog Day! I hope he gives us what we want...........EARLY SPRING!!
