I have about 10 years of practice already, and I think I master them well enough It's not that. Sometimes they just suddenly decide to hate me for a while. Which is fine, since I enjoy digital art too.
Oh, next time you feel that the colors are taking an odd turn, why not wash the paper (in the sink)? It will leave a faint trace of color that you can use for the background or to build a color scheme that you might like more.
Um... that's not entirely true. I did ruin the original, but I like this version that I scanned. And even if I could wash off the mistake, it would ruin the background which is a pretty big deal. I'm afraid I'm not one of those magical people who can correct their watercolors.
Oooh, I love this. Did you use salt to get that effect on the foliage? Creates such intricate patterns. And those Autumnal colours look delicious But it sucks that you're not happy with it anymore. I hate it when I make a mistake on something that I can't change. But, like you said, it's a good thing you scanned it first <3 xxxx
