And does it matter?
I drew this into my art journal last week. I liked it okay but it didn't excite me. What did excite me was the thought of colouring it in wild colours with my water-soluble crayons. I have some lovely Neocolor 2 Carand'ache ones. (when I put in the link I saw that they have sets with over 80 colours, it brought up my crayon lust! I have the 40 colour set.)
So I did. Then it looked weird on the white background so I put in the dark background with Derwent Inktense water-soluble pencils.
I didn't think the lines all over the background was working. So I took my art journal out into the studio and painted in the background with black gesso. Much better. It suites the strength of the colours.I finished the page off with a prayer that a dear friend taught me for taking total responsibility. Sorry, but I don't understand it well enough to explain it.
Do I think the drawing is better? Not really. Am I sorry I changed it? Not at all. I am happy with the page, I took risks and it was fun doing it. I think when I look at the page I remember that.
What do you think?
