This is what I drew in the first 20 minutes as I work on my painting for the Jane Eyre Challenge. (see sidebar)
I'm painting a cormorant perching on the mast of a sunken ship. I think I'm overdoing the feathers.
The great thing about art is that you can throw away your first, second, TWENTIETH attempt and nobody needs to know! So I'll do a lot of fiddling with this before it's finished. No hurry or time limit on this one.
Paint on, my friends!
