Painting was fun, but came with a few lessons, of course! Overall, I'm happy with the papers when I look at them in isolated groups. In the photo, all those disparate colors just don't work together.
I would have been happier if I had stuck with just one color palette for all 12 sheets of paper. Having this many paint colors out and going at once was just too messy and inefficient. This is, I'm sure, an amateur level mistake. :)
I'm also wonder about what I'm going to be doing with these. I'll probably find out that none of these colors work for the upcoming projects and that I was supposed to plan better. Maybe I'll go re-read the book tonight. Now I'm sure my amateurity (new word) is showing ... I wonder if I'll get kicked out of the group? Seriously, it seems that most of these women can do this (with excellence!) in their sleep.
The next step involves solvent ink. That stuff doesn't wash off. I can just envision my lovely French manicure turning into a "Gothic black" look. Maybe I need to buy some gloves! Whatever, I'm having fun!
