Yesterday I had one of these dreadful days where I spend a whole day thinking up a new colouring technique and trying it out and ending up with something by dinner-time that looks profoundly awful and wrong and makes me hide hy head under a pillow. Luckily I've done that many times before, so I wasn't cross for too long, and I spent half the night thinking of better ways. - I think there's no way around the fact that I can't make pictures I like unless I do the tone first and then the line, and so any attempt of doing line drawings and then colouring them in any way is doomed... Now I'm trying colouring in tonal drawings and also putting down the colour first and then adding line (that would be ideal, but a problem with backgrounds). Ah well, don't expect sense out of me for a few days.
