HELLO EVERYONE - old and new, Iíve been gone forever...weíll at least 3 years. Iím baaaaccckkkk.....
Half sheet of arches 140lb watercolor paper (I must be crazy!) I havenít painted watercolor in years so this will be a long drawn out process.
I sketched it and then used just Daniel Smith Payneís Gray. Stopped at 2 hours.

A good start, I used to have to lift drain covers in my job designing drainage systems. They're heavy!

Doug, the socks only have stripes up top, itís the plain area Iím having a heck of a time with....maybe striping the socks all the way would be the cure!!0

It's looking great, Vairi! I'm sure you'll find a solution for the socks. (Maybe try vertical white ribbing.)
