Ah, what a few hours of teeny tiny pen strokes will do! I’m going to let the ink dry thoroughly, and then my plan is to finish the painting sometime by the end of the week, depending on how many layers of paint I need to make me happy. Since Sue is a dark colored horse, that means a lot of layers, and each one has to be at least almost dry before the next goes on. So while there might not be a lot of time spent painting, there is a lot of time spent waiting for paint to dry. I won’t be watching that paint dry, though. More like coming by every now and then to take a peek and decide on my next move. As I mentioned in an earlier post, the challenge is going to be the blurry background and Sue’s fuzzy coat. I’ve been thinking about it all along as I drew her, but something always comes up that I didn’t count on when I’m in the midst of painting–so we’ll see what new adventures Sue has in store for me.
Charm, showing off the only braids that will stay in her endless mane.
