...and the recent work. I've been working on a story for about a year and finally have all the elements completed to begin submitting it to publishers. The subject matter is a midnight Halloween Trick or Treat tale (in the Victorian era, how's that for fun?), but there is no way I can push the watercolor to do what I want for this project. Hence the new medium. I did an acrylic cover painting and didn't love the finished result, especially the way it scans and the color dies, dies , dies. A more reflective and transparent medium is always going to give a more vivid scan. But I persevered, did another painting and this one has better color and a better design than the first - so there you go. I could do a few more before I call it quits but for now I need to move this one on out!
And many thanks for the encouragement given in my previous post Help Me. Sometimes that's all it takes; that and a couple gallons of dogged determination.
