This is another piece that I found problematic. The colours were too coarse at first. So I blended them up with water (I used FC Watercolour Pencils). Really like the finish now. The bottom of the nest may be a little dark, but I've decided to let it be for now. Just like life, right? Sometimes you need to fix things immediately and sometimes you can afford to wait and see.
I believe I've found a hidden interest in art, something I have not given any thought to all these years. I bought a gingerbread house in Ikea the other day, and I was thinking of decorating it with icing - another art form I never dared to explore before. Will I succeed? Time will tell :)
