Finished the on-paper chicken drawing, expect the digital version next week some time (that one's cooler, I think). I hadn't originally planned to "finish" this drawing so... yeah. I'll go ahead and enter it.

I've been round and round with that Gypsy painting. There are so many layers of paint you can't even see the canvas texture anymore! This morning I redid the background a gradation from turquoise to dark bluish purple. VERY pretty, but I was just totally unsatisfied. It was too... nebulous I guess. I liked the color but the horse needed to be somehow more grounded. So... I redid it again, this time a two-tone flat blue. Bits of turquiose can still be seen (which I like) and bits of red may end up showing around the edges (I may or may not like, we'll see). I've pretty well obscured the horse, so I'll need to redraw some things tomorrow.. I may end up wishing I'd restarted, but I hope not!
