Crappety crap crap.

Well, the studio is setup and I finally started painting.

It’ll be fine, but it’s definitely disheartening. It’s the same damn thing it was with pencil…it took a few weeks for the skills to come back. I’m basically having to relearn how to manipulate the paint…..

Oh well, here’s the first sketch I did to test the paints…….the drawing underneath isn’t that great, which is probably part of the reason I don’t like it. That, and I got impatient and tried to do several layers at once, instead of doing a new layer every two days until the color builds up (which is why I used to work on several paintings at once).

There’s a glare from the flash, but I’m not even going to bother to get a better picture since the whole point of this was to test the paints and “christen” the studio.
