Not sure if I like it. Yet. But let's call it a work in progress. A baby step in the right direction.
It was worth the time spent. I had come to realize:
- Putting down all the colors is first step, blending is next. No exceptions.
- Cool shadow is different than warm shadow. Purple vs. orange, remember?
- Just the right number of strokes, no less, no more. Period.
- Try your best but also, learn to be kind when your work doesn't measure up.
