At last, I 'think' I'm done.
I was all ready to take my wee parcel off to the P.O when "The Critique" aka "DH", (and I don't mean Dear!), asked to see what I had done...........Grrrrr...........
This man has an eye for perspective and an even keener eye for MiStaKeS, &#!* So here I was thinking I had done a beautiful take on Van Gough's 'B i A' only to have it crit'd to pieces. Now I know he means well and I actually appreciate his input as I learn so much from it, But, It always seems to come when I think my masterpiece is brilliant!
Back to the drawing board I skulk, muttering to myself, armed with instructions, brush & gesso and "The Critique" close behind.
I could see an improvement once I had finished re-working a few lines and scrubbing a few more. It was much better..........
It is still a great deal less than perfect, If I had wanted perfection I would have photocopied the real thing. It's quirky, wonky, shabby & chic and it is my own work.
She stepped back to take a look at her finished piece and she was Pleased!!!
