I thought it would be great to paint.
It was more difficult than I thought, the darks and lights were more difficult to capture than I anticipated, and I had some trouble with the shadows.
Trying to fix this and get the shadows the way I saw them, I overpainted a bit... I just thought if I try this one more thing... maybe I will like it more.
I finally decided it was time to quit and move on to the next one. I have started another of a dog and a snowman, my only goal is not to overpaint!
