Tinted gouache in colors to get this far. It still doesn't work and I'm unsure where I'm going with this. What made me want to paint this in the first place - the shoes!! ha-ha
I was thinking I could use this for the Red, White or Blue project at WatercolorWorkshop - but I hope it comes together better than this for that to happen.
Oh, well, I'll work on it more tomorrow maybe - right now my back is OUT and it is not fun - unable to sit, stand, move, lie down without pain. I tell you, exercise is BAD for ME!!! (Jerry says I'd be fine if I didn't try to go at it like I'm training for an Olympic event each time I work out - but I figure the harder I work, the faster I'll get in shape, right?)
Well, I stand when painting and I'm fine when bending over my table but when I try to straighten back up - ouch! I hope I'm better (well, it's been 2 days already, so I should be healed, right???) by tomorrow's drawing session.
