|This is what is left of the eraser smudge in the bottom, left corner. Much darker in real life and gooey to boot.|
|Being Pthalo Blue, anything lighter in value that goes over won't hide it. By default, whatever goes in that space will have to be something dark and nearly opaque.|
My husband came through the studio and saw my, um, dismay. He calmly told me he was sure I'd fix it and that what ever I figured out would look great. Have I mentioned lately what a great guy I am married to? Well, I am. He managed to snap me out of the, "I'm an idiot and have ruined not only my painting, but possibly the rest of my life" silliness and into "Now what?" mode. I still don't know now what, but I have the beginnings of an idea. I'll sleep on it and try to tackle it tomorrow. Tonight, however, I've had enough. I will be under my bed with a carton of ice cream. Maybe the jar of caramel sauce, too.
|Where the painting stands now. I'm out of this studio till I've had a bit of sleep and perspective. Tomorrow is another day.|
