None of them starring Hugh Grant (get it?...oh never mind)
I spent most of the long weekend painting and sketching (and erasing) and created four very lovely ACEOs - one of them quite different to my usual style.
There's 'Green Tea' (who sold about 20 minutes after I listed her - man, some people are fast)
and Le Incy Wincy (he's French, you see)
And the 'failure' was this piece which I'm going to redo today.
It started out with promise (as most things do)...
And then it got erased and redrawn so many times, the paper's almost see through.
I like the general idea, but I have no idea where I should put colour and where I shouldn't, whether the background should have a giant threatening tentacle-waving octopus in it etc and so forth.
So I'll be having a good, hard think about it (ouch) and redrawing the whole lot.
I like the pose, I like the way her hair becomes the floor, I looove the shoes! - and I certainly like the idea of rescuing a fish from a restaurant (not that you necessarily can tell that from the image - but I know!).
But I need to learn to solve the problems before I'm working on the finished piece. Just impatient I guess. ;)
