|Watercolor Batik on Rice Paper - 8X10|
The beauty of doing a piece of artwork you don't like is having the option to crop it. Our friend and mentor Helen once scolded me for being too quick to discard a failed painting. She then demonstrated how to remove an oil painting from stretcher bars, cut the canvas, and restretch onto smaller bars with a more pleasing crop.
Of course, cropping is a bit easier when a drawing, watercolor batik or a painting is on paper. Today's batik was originally 12X16. It was the second attempt at doing this dog and I messed up the left side of his face. Since I wasn't up to the challenge of attempting number three, I cropped His Unreasonableness. Well, don't tell Helen, but I still really don't like it.
Tomorrow is a another day.
