Well, up early to do my few chores, and get back out to try and paint this old relic again. I set myself up with a different angle today, and I planned to really work hard at getting the drawing right. I measured carefully, and re-measured----and I used a white piece of Richeson's Premium pastel paper, cut to 9 x 12. I planned to use watercolor over the drawing, a sort of value plan and when dry, finished with pastel. Sounds like a good plan, right?-----I think the drawing, which I done in pencil, was good---well, as good as I can get it! , But better----So I went ahead with the w/c, and I rather liked that.
