Well here goes... I'm illustrating a book for someone and yay, for doing it in watercolors. I knew nothing about watercolor painting so I looked into it and tried to understand all the techniques I could. So basically all the pictures are drawn and now I'm just down to painting them and I have about 7 of 20 done. That's not so bad. I just finished one of the 7 today and wowee, I really liked it. That's pretty amazing since I can find something wrong with every other picture. So you think I should be happy bout that and I was but nooooo I had to be stupid and try to take the tape off the edges (which I do so I can get a straight line for a border) before it was dry and yay, now it's a mess of rip and tear. I guessssss it's not horrible... but it's bad enough to make me upset. (since I have the need to write about it).
Frankly I'm disappointed in my stupid nature. Every other picture I waited for it to be dry but this picture I had to be impatient.... now I just feel like a moron but I guess that's how it is. maybe I can glue it back together gently but it's annoyyyyying when you have something you like and then you utterly destroooooooooy it...
and it's not often that I actually like a picture that I've done... like a completed picture. Yeah, I like my sketches, ya, I know how to draw, but painting is a different entity and I don't have as much control over it nor do I always have the patience or know how.
all well... I guess it won't be so bad later when I look at it.
That's it.. I'm done my sob story.
