Well, my watercolor teacher, Sandy M., suggested I put a dark mixed green color at top in the center and fading out lighter on the edges. I tried. Really I did. And when it wasn't working I tried even harder and got messier and then finally just took the whole thing, put it under running water in the tub, and washed it off with my hand until - well - now it looks like it has measles :(
So the moral of the story is - if you don't feel well enough to get out of the house and go to the gym because the sinus pressure in your head makes you feel punk, then you don't feel like making good decisions when it comes to painting so leave it alone.
But I'm not giving up on this one - it's definitely a "do-over" with a different technique in mind and maybe even different paper. I've heard that Twinrocker paper is called the Mercedes of paper - and maybe another try and I'll think that way, too, but I didn't fall in love with it on the first go-round.
Today going to visit our new grandbaby, Devlin, and see how he's grown in almost 2 weeks and get some new photos.
