This is why I hate watercolors.
Just finished off a painting tonight of Neys Provincial Park (on the North Shore of Lake Superior). I spent a lot of careful time on this.
I was feeling reasonably happy with this my work, until it was time to go home, and I noticed a bright blue smudge on the left.
Some blue pigment from one of my tubes tube had inadvertently gotten onto the paper.
I tried lifting it, but it was too late. The damage was done.
Well, at least the stain wasn’t smack in the middle of the painting, or two entire evenings would have been completely written off.
But if I crop off 1/2 an inch, the painting is still salvageable. I got off lucky this time.
But still…it’s not quite the same. I”m bothered by this.
This is why I HATE watercolors sometimes.
It’s so damned unforgiving.
