Why on earth do I insist on making things that need to be painted (at least in part) -- why do I do it to myself -- why don't I just get collaborators to do the painting? Gah. I struggle with it so much.
Today I tried to add color to the really long horns guy. The painting is just a mess...I will need to start over I think. Then I used paper for the base layer on the horns, thinking I may touch them up with paint or a wash of some sort and painted details. What is wrong with me?
|Before -- how he looked when I was started out today.|
|first color on mouth|
|two colors on hand|
|two colors on other hand|
|trying to do something around his eyes|
|and then it spread out all over his face|
|I don't know...I just don't know.|
|I like this color of mulberry paper for a base layer on the horns...now to tear the paper into tiny pieces.|
|Really long horns guy sitting on a box on the floor so I can sit to work on his horns.|
|first few pieces of yellow|
|a little piece of paper|
|each horn took one hour|
|What am I going to do with you, buddy?|
