LL201 lesson 4

omg... what a train wreck.

Not the whole thing. It started out pretty good. I had a plan to work from Z to A and it went just fine. Letters penciled in, then markered in - so far so good. (they're supposed to look like they're disappearing down the center. yes? no?)

The wheels started to come off when I got out the paints. Actually the Inktense pencils. And actually, that part mostly went ok.

Until I added a gray and a red to the lovely mix of greens and blues I already had going. Should have stepped away from the table right there. But I didn't, of course. I added more color to the bad parts, then a little more.

Still bad. Maybe worse.

Got out my little Windsor & Newton watercolor set and proceded to really mess things up. Oy.

But then I got kind of into playing with the watercolors and quit worrying so much about the actual assignment.

So... think the next class I sign up for should prolly be painting, except I've tried that and I just don't have the gene. On to lesson 5.


  1. And they do! Disappear, I mean! I like that movement, although dizzying for people like me who really should wear her glasses all the time.

  2. It's not as bad as you think it is! I have yet to do this one so I will take your learning experience to heart when I do!
