The finishing point
You know how sometimes you just don't stop when the voice inside your head tells you to?
Today was one of those days.
Early this morning I started playing around with some pastels on a full size sheet of red mi-tientes. It was coming together nicely and I was happy with the mix of colours and contrast against the background.
I had a break and a cup of coffee then came back to it and started fiddling around. You know how the scenario goes. "Well, I'll just touch up this section here by the stem. I wonder what it would look like if it was darker on the right?" Then before you know it, you've changed everything and it looks worse than that haircut your mother gave you in third grade.
But its all part of the game. Live. Learn. Screw up.
