Both the title and the sentiment.
Once again, I used the wrong medium for the job. I though oil pastels would be good to illustrate the whale and bowl of petunias. And they may very well be…but I only used 5×7 paper, so even though there is not a lot of detail, there is enough for it to be too big a medium on too small of paper.
I did attempt to balance this out be drawing bigger than my initial pencil sketch….so my pencil lines are still visible. I also have a lot of color artifacts, though fewer than usual. Color layering is not a seffetive as I wanted, either.
Someday I shall learn, but right now I am more the whale than the petunias.
