Below is one more seahorse. My last seahorse really wanted to be pink. She started off fine, and the seagrass was fun, but then... challenges and attempts to fix her. I stuck here out of sight in my creative journal, wrote a critique about all of the skills I needed to work on. Then I took the class in Creative Play by Yasmina, another excellent teacher on Skillshare.
So, here, without such harsh self-judgment, is Pink Seahorse, weeks after I finished this wonderful class in which I learned so much. Pink Seahorse really wanted to have a presence despite the interference white I used on the muddy flowers to try to paint over them and all the weird stuff that happened. In fact, you may see a pink blur around the seahorse which was deliberately done with a sponge to soften some edges! Also, I combined the splatters from the first exercise, mostly to distract from boo-boos, and I sponged on some blue for the water, again, another cover-up.
