just finished a greyscale in gouache paint
man, i never thought it'd be so frustrating
i'm new to paints, well art as a whole, so everytime i'd turn around something would go wrong. first the mixture of black to white was off so i couldn't paint swatches in sequence, then i couldn't get a proper consistency, then i'd accidentally smudge the good swatches, then i'd accidentally get a microscopic amount of rubber cement on a swatch therefore ruining it so i'd have to go back and match the color exactly to get the precision. finally after six hours i'm freaking finished!
sorry if this seems long and pointless but i couldn't think of a better way to vent my frustration
if anyone else has gone through this long process by all means post a reply
