Naturally, I had to redo the Olive Tree in a Pot in coloured pencil, just to see how it would turn out. Must really learn how to let go! Surely though there's nothing wrong with seeing something from a different perspective, it's a lot more fun as far as I'm concerned - and I may end up liking it even more, no? Sometimes I just have to trust my instincts and go for it ... so I ended up printing the pencil sketch out onto matte heavyweight paper, and coloured over that:
The matte paper, however, turned out to be pretty resistant to my creative charms and the colours therefore far more faded than planned as I couldn't layer any real depth onto it. Still, I think it turned out well enough for now, and I quite like it really. What do you think, should I have left well enough alone?
Wishing you a day full of lovely surprises. Cheers.
