And then there are times when it would be so much wiser to admit defeat. I am admitting defeat with this glazing technique. It's bested me. Going back to what I know and not struggling so much with this.
I got a nice big blossom when I put in the cobalt blue glaze - don't know why more water seeped there, because I was working the same way as when I got the nice yellow and red glazes. So...I'll never be Catherine Anderson with her dozens of glazes. But then, I'll just be me and that's okay for today!
So your painting efforts have given you lemons, grapefruits and limes. What do you do? Fix the mistakes as best as you can and move on. Drink the lemon- and limeade (yum), pucker up and go out and kiss a Frenchman!
I'll pull the miskit off this and finish it but it won't be a great painting - not even a good painting. I bow to those who has mastered the layered glaze. Now time to move on!
