George Washington. But like. Young?

My half of an art trade/commission/whatever with *NikIsFritz. Heís into George Washington right now. I canít imagine why; of all the Founding Fathers, we all know that Ben Franklin was the sexiest.
lulz

I realize how shitty the colors are. Part of it is cuz I forgot about how yellow and dim the lights in my bedroom are, and it actually looked pretty good when I was watercoloriní.
But yeah, itís soÖ brown. I imagine that a Revolutionary-era stable or whatever the hell I wanted this to be would probably be a very dull-colored place, but Iím sure he wanted something with like rainbows and glitter and what-not.

GODDANG Itís been so long since Iíve done traditional coloring. Iím really sorry how poorly this turned out, Nik. If you want me to redo it or add something, let me know.

But hey, this looks really good. My watercolors suck, and I usually end up spill the water all over the painting.

There are so many gray spots all over my carpet from spilling paint. I'm good at keeping it off the paper, just not anything else.

I'm afraid a lot of artsits are like that. There's an oil paint stain on my bedroom carpet from when I was in elementary school.
