What is the coolest thing you’ve ever owned? How about what’s the coolest thing you’ve ever touched?
I had a college professor who worked on the restoration of the terracotta army from China in the late seventies. He told this story about repairing an arm on a warrior. He had a piece in his hands and on the back was a perfect thumb print from the artisan who had first constructed the piece over two thousand years prior. He said his thumb fit the print perfectly.
This time, I darkened the outlines a bit more. I think I may adopt this technique as well. I am enjoying my experiments a lot and feel like I am growing as an artist and it feels wonderful.
