Well, my little foray into the tea stained world has faltered!!! My painting has gone badly wrong and this is what I have learned. You need to have a very light touch when adding any colour to a tea-stained background, otherwise the result is a page of blotchy mud!I'm going to have a go at inking in some detail, but really the painting is just getting darker and darker and please don't ask me to share it, because I can't bear to look at it!!!
I still have some other sketches to get working on and I feel a great need to do some more pictures of my Little Unicorn. He makes me so happy with his funny little shape and scruffy body, he reminds me exactly of my wee Merlin :D
Thankfully not all has been lost with my work though, my latest painting has turned out exactly as I wanted and will soon be in my Etsy shop and on my website. When I get myself motivated to do the updates, that is!!! It's so much fun just painting though!!!
So here it is, Dragon Elemental no.2 - Fire.
