Get swept away in your imagination. Let it bloom.
I'm working on being more comfortable with my painting. What looks like a mistake doesn't have to be, or it can be painted over. When I work digitally, I always have the security of the undo or delete a layer. I have to get comfortable working without that security blanket.
I worked with my new Faber Castell Gel Sticks. They are the "childrens'" version of Gelatos and I have read in various places that people couldn't really tell the difference when working, between the two. They worked beautifully for me. In my basic set, the white included is a gelato...so...
I also used a few stamps and of course the stickers. I did the eye details with my Faber Castell Pitt Artist Black Pens, because I wasn't confident taking a tiny paint brush to paint the black there...maybe next time.
...And of course... my brush picked up a cat hair, and placed it right in the middle of her forehead! I don't know how I didn't notice it until it was dried and part of the painting. Undo.. Undo.. where's my Undo?! Ahh well, it's all part of being an artist in a house filled with animals.
