I was very happy with the way Tufty was coming along but now, not so much anymore. I'm really unhappy with the background and at this point I'm not even sure if it's worth finishing it.
This morning I did some more work on him with the same colors mentioned previously and the BG I did with Sennelier Soft Pastels. I have no idea what the color names are but I used three layers in the following order: some sort of dark blue like Indigo Blue, a brownish red, like Indian Red and a blue-green (similar to Prismacolor Peacock Green) all blended with stencil brushes. I wasn't as careful as I should've been around his edges so now I have to fix it as best as I can. Then again, I haven't even decided whether or not I'm finishing this piece. What do you think? Can it be saved at all? Your brutally honest opinions are very much appreciated, since I don't want to waste more time with something that can't be saved. I have too many other projects going on, so if you think Tufty's hopelessly ruined, do say it, please!
