So, there I was on my 'day off', merrily painting away when......
Arghhhhhhh!! What happened there?!!!
Oh, bother! I didn't mix my wash properly - small particles of pigment were still floating about in it, waiting to cause havoc.
Oh well. It just means that this is another practice and, to be honest, I wasn't totally convinced that the background wash was working anyway. I'll have another go, try another technique.
Ah! There you go - much better!
I'll show another peek when it is finished.
