Day One Hundred Fifty-Six (part two)
If you know me, you know how much I hate to paint and the lengths I go to in order to avoid it. Then when I finally actually paint, I hold my breath and I am so shaky by the time I am done I need a Xanax...sheesh. Well, that's where I am right now.
I finally fixed BiteYou's edges and half-decided on the look for his eyes. In order to commit to his eyes paint I used colored pencils on a couple of print outs I made for myself to practice on. I wish the act of painting was as simple as the colored pencil attempts. Anyway -- for now, here is what I ended up with. I will need to put another layer of Payne's Gray on the inside of his eyes. I know for sure that I don't want to add the white highlights at end. Yeah, it probably would look better, but it is just not me. I am just thrilled I got this far.
I suppose I could change my mind and re-paint his eyes with my first thought -- the deeper brown inside of the original brown edge...no white circle...but, whoa -- I SO need a break right about now!
