When sick, I started a day off with watercolors.
Gads I am rusty… Groans…
I’ve been painting with inks!
This is a mixture of ink and watercolor, an experiment,
actually mixing them together and it is a failed experiment… oddly brown skin!
And his head is too tiny for his body!
I believe in posting the failed pieces so you can see what I’m not happy with too.
Splashing splatter on this one made it look like Holi!
Things got better as the day wore on.
“Memory is more indelible than ink.”
Anita Loos, Gentlemen Prefer Blondes.
“I think not….”
Me… why I journal!
