Another Tufted Titmouse
Yet another one. I'm switching to tube paints instead of pan paints, and I'm actually having more trouble with intensity than with the pan paints. I always kept the surface of the pan paints being used very wet, so I just need to mentally switch to the differences. Also, I enjoyed working out of pans onto porcelain dishes. Now I'm finding my large Robert Wood palette too large for me, and I'm awaiting the delivery of a portable palette with large wells and a detachable lid.
It's hard for me to put random colors in the backgrounds because though I enjoy the look, my personality is better suited to a predetermined, linear design or a solid. I'll eventually get the knack and control for more interesting backgrounds.
My printer is now printing decent copies of photos to use. Seems the previous problems were due to using an Office Depot color cartridge instead of the appropriate branded cartridge. No wonder the quality had degraded so much. Won't make that mistake again.
