My own worst enemy
Did this from memory really quickly and just glanced at my reflection after finishing...yeah, I need to hit the gym. But anyways, was watching Jeremy Vickery's masterclass and discussing depth of field and thought 'man I NEVER to blurry background stuff' so threw this out.
Yeah, for the next ten minutes, I'm happy with it.
One of the things I've gleaned from the gnomon classes and my watercolour dabblings is not to worry about nailing the hue on the first stroke. Subtle build ups are better than hasty corrections. That, and take a moment to pick or make the right brush. I find it's making a big difference.
Anyway, back to this video!
