I painted the inside of a fox's nostril today. True story.
The adventures with tape continue and I can finally see the end of stage one coming around the corner. Taping takes nearly as much time as painting - it's like a puzzle and as long as I stick to the plan, each piece falls into place. I had a bit of a marathon session today, which I've been doing my best to avoid. As I contorted my body into all sorts of unnatural angles and held it there for a while, I thought to myself, "This is why I workout - so I can paint." Today I created a system to help me remember all my colour mixing for when I have to remix and touch-up, as well as decided on a three colour maximum for reusing tape before it gets too difficult to discern where the lines are.
Plus, I got a thumbs up from a cute little passerby, so my approval rating looks good in the 3-5 age category. A thumbs up and a nostril full of paint (the fox's not mine) - pretty good day, I'd say.
