2 things I didn't know about myself until this week...I hate painting pumpkins and painting on hot press wc paper.
After 3 tries at those silly pumpkins on some hot press wc paper, I finally switched to my regular arches cold press just to soothe my tortured soul. Now I am not sure if it was the paper or the pumpkins, but the paper switch didn't help all that much. And why am I trying to paint a white pumpkin? I don't know.
Go look at some good ones at Karin's...
