Smile and a Mishap

Wish I could redo the painting on this one.  I painted the letters blue, and then I wished I had left them white.  I had the “bright” idea that I could lighten them up with “Whiteout”–which happened to be handy.  BAD idea!  I used my watercolor brush and quickly found out that the “Whiteout” is oil based and sticks like glue!  I tried to wash the brush, but the white just got all over my fingers and won’t come off.  I guess I need turpentine.  And the brush is now in the garbage.  And now you know–Whiteout is NOT like watercolor!  And it didn’t even cover up the blue.

So even though this was a disaster, I learned from it and I still like my drawing–just don’t like how the painting came out.  Shows what an amateur I am!   I tried to spruce it up a bit with a border done in Picmonkey.  Hope you will “SMILE” anyway.

  1. Looks like you saved the piece and learned a few things even though you ruined the brush. Hope it wasn’t a good one! This painting did make me smile even though I bet it made you frown a couple of times during the creation! Love the border too! xo Sandy
