I started this watercolor a bit ago, and kind of lost interest in it. (Anybody remember Miss Vanilla Cupcake? It was more than just a bit ago -- it was in July!) This afternoon I decided to pick it back up again and see what might happen. All the white lines in the grass were masked out with blue masking fluid, so the first thing was to get that stuff off of there. I was a little worried that it had been on for too long, but it came off without a single problem. There's a bit of a mess in the grass, which I expected since the whole grass thing was an experiment, and I'm not sure what I think about it. There's a gaping hole in the left middle ground, and I'm not sure if I should fill it with cows (do you see the beginnings of the black cows behind her?) or with darker vegetation. Any ideas? And there's always the option of cropping the whole thing so that just the right half of the painting is left.
And, by the way, for you palette junkies, here is the clean -- well it was clean -- palette.
(P.S. I'm finally over the bug and plan on going to work tomorrow. Isn't THAT just the way things go -- you feel good enough to do something fun and you have to go to work. Well, all I have to say about that is thank goodness. Whew!)
