I haven't made much progress this week, and I probably won't until the weekend. This is where I am now:
This painting is turning out to be more difficult than I thought it would be, or even than it should be. I didn't realize, until after I painted the background, that I drew the picture on the wrong side of the watercolor paper-- rookie mistake. The paint just doesn't move, blend, and lift as well as it does when painting on the right side of the paper. Needless to say, it's quite frustrating.
