I invested in better colored pencils today. I feel very lucky to have them, and the peaceful leisurely time to get to know them well. I'm having a good time lately, making portraits, enjoying good food, art supplies, and just now, a warm bath using rosemary scented shampoo. Now my art better be great, or else!
I cheated. I used gouache to cover an area I mistakenly colored. The stain wouldn't come out, so I masked it. Smart eh? I bet it's done all the time. Gouache is watercolor. I'm supposed to be doing colored pencil. I was desperate, after coloring in the white of an eye, when I meant to color the iris! Phew! Lucky I had white gouache to the rescue.
