I decided to jump right in and start watercoloring Felix. Sometimes it is just better to dive in, come what may. If I think too much about what I want to do, I start to get overly cautious. So far I like the black, but I think it needs to be darker in places. It’s not quite clear that he is a black horse yet and I haven’t decided whether or not to add his “worried” eyebrow. The trick, as always, is not to overdo it.
I will be taking a short break on Felix, which is probably not a bad thing. I already see some parts to darken. I got a house commission over the weekend and will have to devote the drawing table to getting it out. It is on the small side, so it will be quick, but it has some very cute eave details.
