So, I really struggled with this one, and it shows. In the interest of honesty, I'm posting it, though I'm not happy with it. But, it's OK ..... I jumped in and did it. My rational self knows quite well that not every painting is going to be successful, but still, that doesn't quell the desire. I was going to stop midway through (actually, truth be told, I was going to stop before I started), but fortunately common sense prevailed and I just kept going. There's no need to point out all the problems this painting has ... they're self evident. Since I had already started it before the great suggestions about using smaller paper were made, I painted it on a 9 x 12 watercolor block. Maybe my next one will be a tad smaller, looser, and a more relaxed process than this one was. Thanks again to all of you - I really appreciate all your support and helpful ideas!
