How Many Mistakes Can You Make On One Picture!?
The really amazing thing is that even though it was a watercolor I was able to fix most of the problems.
I really wish I would have taken pictures of each problem because it was a MESS!
Lessons learned: ( I just made solutions up as I went hoping they would work! no clue how to really do it!
- if you are going to use watercolors you really should use watercolor paper! I was just "playing" so I drew it on the back of a messed up piece of Drawing paper. That works "ok" if no mistakes are made, but it started to wear thin the more I worked on mistakes.
The way I fixed most of the mistakes was to just add lots of water and hopefully it will pull the paint out and spread, I also blotted with a tissue... HAVE A TISSUE CLOSE!
Even though 95% is actual watercolor I fixed a lot of the problems with color pencils...like a WHITE pencil was wonderful! I was able to color over the misshapped eyebrows with the white.
The one thing I didn't fix very well was the colored cheeks. When I first put the color on it was a DEEEEEP red! shocking! Panic! Thankfully most of it washed off but the paper started to roll up and get thin so I stopped before I made a hole in the paper. Its good enough for what it is though... the back side of another mess I made with a pen!
