sometimes you have to go backwards to move forwards

Spent yesterday deconstructing a piece I have been working on. I wasn't satisfied with the line work on it. Kept trying to convince myself that it was OK but it really wasn't OK. So several hours later, and with a permanently bent backwards thumb joint from gripping the tweezers...the results feel right.

And what a texture to consider!

That is amazing !
What are those cylindrical things?
I love, love, that texture - it may
almost be worth
Having your thumbs on backwards for
Awhile -
Good for you and attagirl for doing
whatever it takes to make your vision
And your art truthful and perfectly
Beautiful- This is your reward!
Thanks for sharing.
