Horrible Hedgehogs

I don’t think hedgehogs are horrible! I just don’t like how these paintings came out. I reluctantly post them as my one disappointment in the whole art blog/website sphere is that there’s never any middle ground, or examples of the stepping stones it took to eventually make great art.

Not here —  I don’t have that filter. I’ll embarrass myself as much as possible to show the true side of art, that it is hard and you’re going to make mistakes over and over.

So these hedgehogs I made using my trusty Brusho pigment and watercolours.

One thing I really did like was how the Indian ink has that crackley puddle effect when I added too much water. I’m going to do more of that!
