Goat Skull - from not so bad to worse
I just love this goat skull my DH found it ( for free) @ an estate sale and brought it home to me -- Absolutely one of the best gifts he ever got for me - I sketched it with pastel - and it was pretty nice - then I added a shadow - ummm not as nice -- and then I colored the back ground to cover the shadow and toned down the colors in the skull -which basically ruined what was good in the original sketch - I keep forgetting to quit while I'm ahead and stop way before I think I'm finished.
Will I ever learn to STOP messing around and leave it alone -
I so admire simple, clean, understated sketches -- but, boy oh boy, it is really hard for me to stop!!
You will be seeing this goat again - soon I hope -
