OMG, OMG, OMG, OMG!!!!!! I'm in the midst of a deep artistic panic! I've just completely ruined my fairy tale painting!!! I'm not sure whether to cry or scream, probably both or maybe I'll just howl!!!
All was going well, I had almost finished the main character in colored pencil, when I decided to do the background in watercolor. So, I took a moment to decide which pigment to use first, opened the box where the watercolor tubes are and reached for Dioxazine Purple. When I tried to unscrew the cap, the thing simply refused to open. I reached for my pliers hoping that'll do the trick and...disaster!!! The stupid, evil tube exploded!!! There was paint all over myself, my desk, and horror of all horrors - my painting!!! I immediately tried to wash away the paint by running cold water over it but to no avail. There were too many spots hopelessly stained, including the main character. I pretty much just want to curl up in a ball and cry...
Sorry for the rant, I had to get it out of my chest, I'm totally freaking out right now!!!
Hugs from a deeply distressed, tearful and floored Jade
