October 16, 2009 - Day 67

Da Vinci watercolor on Saunders Waterford cold press paper

Was busy all day and wasn't able to start this painting until late tonight. I didn't realize that there was a flaw in the paper until after I had put in the first background wash. By then it was too late in the evening to start over and still finish before midnight. It looks like there was a cut or groove in the paper starting just below the bull's head and arching down to the bottom edge of the paper.

I realized as I was writing the above paragraph that I hadn't put the shadow in under the bull so I had to stop to do that and then re-scan the painting into the computer.
