my wrecked scenery and my new project

I've been working for about 3 weeks at an hour or so a day on my scenery of a lake with mountains.
Well...I decided to do a watercolour wash on it and when I wet both sides of the paper and splashed paint on it for it to float into different interesting ink from my pointilism pen ran all over the paper making my whole picture a ink blue shade.
I thought that maybe I could salvage i splashed blue waterpaint where there wasnt much smudged ink but the whole thing still looked like a mess.
so I let it dry and then I crumpled it and tossed it in paper recycling.
then I talked to morris about what I've just done.
and he said I should dig it out, smooth it out and take a picture of it and post it.
Just to say that an artist isn't always bullet proof....we make mistakes too.'s my new project... a raccoon!
so so so cute, I love him,...he's turning out to be a success.
I hope you like him too.
here's a picture of him half done....I'll post a picture of him all finished in a few days.

Hi Rachel, I like the wrecked the picture as it does confirm the depth and time that this type of art takes and the smallest unforgiving mistake can deprive you of the pleasure of completion. Also, depriving us the opportunity of seeing a really beautiful work of art.
I am proud of you for showing it on this blog.
