Drawing and painting and writing. And stuff. Watch me attempt to improve myself, like a slow motion car crash of art.

Another Learning Experience
After much, much redrawing, and one totally abortive attempt at painting, here is that boring old picture partially painted. This is probably as good as you're going to get out of me right now. I hope it isn't as good as I ever do.
It seems that I need to pick colors I think roughly represent the real colors, and then mix those to produce intermediate shades, usually on the canvas itself. And sometimes I just need to ignore the real colors altogether. Otherwise, if I try to pick colors for every major tone I see, I get stuff which is just awful.
