sketchbook 11/15/10

Your sketches are wonderful, as always. I hope you don't mind me saying - and it is only because the sketches are so good that I say this, but I think it is a shame when you cover the sketches with the words. My eyes focus on one, and then I need to focus on the other. I preferred the slight overlap you you used in the 11/8 post. I'm still spending an inordinate amount of time on the acrylic painting - great learning experience though.

Dan-- any critique is welcome and you have a valid point. I think I over did it with the text on this spread. I envisioned something and it didn't turn out the way I hoped it would.

Like you, I am a slave to my acrylic painting. Layer upon layer of paint but it's a total learning experience in how the paint acts and how I should apply it to get the effects I want (somewhat rare occurrence, but when it happens, I'm pretty happy with it). I do wish my painting had an "undo" button, though... it would have been useful in several instances! ;)

hope your painting is going well!
