I spend a lot of my time sketching and erasing. Eraser crumbs get all over the floor of my studio.
When I do the finish, I use a very tiny brush and apply many, many layers of watercolor. Sometimes, after all that, I don't like how it turns out.
Then I start all over again and do it in a different, and hopefully better, way. It can be frustrating.
Like when my son saw this painting, he asked, "Why are those kids reading in the dark?"
So I did this one over too. And it only took three weeks! Sheesh.
This one took even longer to paint, what with all those snowflakes, each one different.
I splattered over the top of it with white paint on a toothbrush. (Not the one I brush my teeth with.)
And finally, these fireworks were done not with an eraser, tiny brush, or toothbrush, but with... gel pens!
