Sometimes it pays to never give up. The art journey is one of discoveries. I should know my materials better, I'm making progress and notes, learning one mistake makes for a class in itself. Another creates a new technique, at least in my hands... I don't know it all and I'm eager to learn and experiment
Here's a classic before and after
Well let me introduce her to you just in case
Now the fun begins!
Mistake number one: if you have a Colorburst background it will be alive , waiting for you to play again... I added some acrylic paint and it reacted with the watercolor
Frustration left me to play on another page, and sleep on it...
#1 I loved the way the liquid metal behaved over the watercolor and how shimmery it was
#2 I learned that if I used clear gesso over I I could seal it and start over ( it will react with the gesso too)
Look carefully at the top right part of her hair do. On the next pictures you'll be able to see a slight green tint, carried over by the clear gesso from her face up. But after it dried it did take all kinds of mediums well!
So you see it may seem impossible but never give up in the end you'll have learned and discovered and grow
