This is what I learned:
♦ I wasn't tired of the painting, I just needed to have the unlimited time to sit and paint. I am tired of not having that unlimited time. It is a bit disturbing to have the feeling of being tired of a painting.
♦ I learned what fun it is to use dip pens and ink. I used the dip pen as a tool with the Lumiere. I wanted the line width to be uneven. The pen worked great for this as it wasn't really loading with Lumiere. After that I remembered that I had some gold ink and I also used black and brown ink.
♦ The best thing I learned was that it is OK to paint a decorative bird. In the past, I always felt awkward about painting a bird that wasn't from real life. Thank you Mr Klimt for showing me this.
♦ I learned that I could have gone on and on and on and on........you can probably see that.
I hope you like it as much as I love it.
