Got out the gouache and brushes yesterday
after so long to see how it felt..
well, let me tell you..
can't do it anymore !!!!!
spoilt forever I think..
just wanted my magical, brilliant, instant colours..
I wanted to push, pull, burn, dodge and filter..
I wanted light effects and texture !!!!!!!!!!
boo hoo.........booooooo hhhhooooooooooo
so the tubes are packed away again.
but I just wanted to try...
because was considering doing
traditional work for my exhibition here
in Wauchope in August,
well, no go.
will have to find a way to print my beautiful digital stuff
in such a way that I can say to buyers that it won't fade in time..
I AM A CYBERARTIST
no turning back to the cave walls now..
