Here's the picture I started first yesterday for Illustration Friday, but I had to wait while the wash dried. So I didn't get back to it until hours later. What I discovered was that if you wait until everything is truly completely dry, then you can rub the mask off without anything smearing. Duh. I'm usually too impatient.
And though I really like the texture on her impossible thoughts, and her face (which I modeled for myself in a mirror), I'm wondering what in the world I'm doing making pictures like this. I HATE stressing. I should be making serene pictures! (But then, I didn't make up this week's topic--and this has been the first one where I had the idea and image the second I saw the topic. Usually I do some free-writing, sketching various ideas, before finally deciding on something.)
