I've Gotta Crow
My sleep schedule often gets kicked off kilter. I'm a night owl, but the rest of the world just won't agree with me. When I decided to do an illustration a day, I got confused as to what a 'day' might mean. Some of my days are super long--30 hours or more. Some of my days, because of the lack of sleep, are much shorter. To help off-set that, I did half of this illustration on the days I completed other illustrations. I plan to do at least one more with this setup.
BUT... because I didn't warm up at all with drawing first, the painting quality here is rough. Those are some scary Darling children. I'm actually a little afraid Wendy might eat me. The overall values are a relief, tho. I was working hard to save that the last ten minutes of painting. I have to admit that 'two hours tops' sometimes works out to 'two hours, ten minutes tops'. I try to stop, but I get lost in a painting and forget. I do force myself before it gets too late. Two hours, twenty minutes wouldn't have hurt Peter Pan much.
