I took this dreaded watercolor painting and finished it with my cherished colored pencils. It feels more like home. I got the effect I was looking for with the layers of color. I will try the watercolors again, next time I'll use watercolor paper. I think the Bristol doesn't partner well with the watercolors.
A special thanks to my blog friends who sent notes of encouragement:

It's always nice to know we are not alone in our art struggles.
I have found the same thing with Bristol paper, though in a small size it works quiet well. This is an amazing piece of art. I adore it--it fills my eyes. Which, is the greatest compliment I can give.ReplyDelete
Happy that encouragement runs freely. Was working with watercolor pencils on water color paper. Need to go back and finish that...ReplyDelete
Oops. And the piece looks great!ReplyDelete
