    April 22 2011 – Doodle De Jour

    April 22 2011 Doodle de Jour I am at a point of frustration with my current work in progress.  I am struggling with getting the kind of detail I want in my line work and it is so difficult with a paintbrush and paint.  It does not compare to my wonderful zebra pen on paper.  I think I should just work with what I have and stop giving myself the expectation that it should look like pen on paper does.  Maybe I will order some black Golden Airbrush fluid and see if it makes a difference.  I have tried my acrylic inks, but they just do not offer the intensity…

Mornings seem to be my most alert…
