Being happy with my test ink I right away jumped into some new ones. This time for real. On hot pressed watercolor paper. I was trying not to get tight and keep the loose feel from the test pictures. Total failure. I felt I went over board and got too tight. I took a deep breath and decided I would finish these and learn from my mistakes.
The next morning when I looked at what I had done, I thought, hey, these aren't too bad. Ahhh, the life of a fickle artist.
