I read a lot of blogs by artists of all kinds and it seems that most have that piece of scrap paper they use as a blot for all the excess paint. Then they use them for another project. They all look so good. Mine is always a really crappy looking brown. Do they plan these or just get lucky?
I use a lot of gesso-ed ? cardboard for my painting, and for my blotter paper. I had some ink left over from a card I made my mom, which I forgot to take a picture of. It just isn't in me to throw art supplies away. Gotta use it up then I can throw away what I painted. Weird I know. Here's what I came up with!
