I decided to sketch out something fun for me:
I thought a fast watercolor (even if it is a 9x12, so it's clearly not going to be that fast) would be fun. Playtime.
I popped in the background, and got into a fight with the block and pooling issues (it buckled so bad, it actually popped the block in several places. I wasn't even using that much water.) I wasn't planning on salting it, but I felt the pigment might make more interesting gathered areas, so I ended up salting it in the end.
That was how far I got over the weekend, but come Monday morning I didn't want to just set it down. So, instead of starting in on my caterpillar, I worked on this some more. It was extremely slow going:
I need to fix her mouth, and her hair once I get it all filled in won't leave so much forehead exposed (she's all skull at this point and it bugs me!) and her dress will be black. I'm not sure if I like it. Her face got a bit muddy, and I'm not sure why that is. However, I feel like I have to finish her, even if I'm not thrilled. It's like going to a movie you don't like, I'm just not a walk-outer. Besides, I've turned others around before, so you never know! Anyway, with Monday being all "blah" and me in a bit of a funk, this did not help!
In other news, I wish I could have rainbow hair.
Also, this evening I went and played with my kids in the snow. Instead of snowmen, we built Jaws:
|You can see the snow-swimmer behind her. He's not gonna make it, I can tell. And yes, he's already munching on someone...|
