The sad tale of last Monday's painting!

It started off as a tiny sketch

Then I sketched out the idea on canvas

The more I worked on it the worse it got!

I waited to show my daughter when she got home from school - she's 11 and is my honest critic! - then I painted it out, and now it's a blank canvas but with history...ready to start again.


  1. Oh Kate, I've been there and am so thankful for gesso!

  2. Oh yes, I finally found your follow this blog spot after scrolling past it a few times previously.....sigh... bifocals aren't for sissies let me tell you!

    1. Glad I'm not the only one, I've found the change over from blogger to google+ very baffling!

    2. I'm almost ready to drop google+ as it's taking so much time to figure out. I'm wondering if it's really worth it. You?

    3. before I started my blog I read the whole of 'blogging for dummies' and felt reasonably competent!! I'm hoping they bring out google + for dummies so that I get some understanding of it...
