Learning from mistakes

As you saw I posted my final project for the created from color. I almost got everything but forgot one tiny bit. Shadow from the hat on the - forehead. Eeks! I got the hair but by the time I came to color face (which I do last I was so happy that things were going well I forgot ). Thanks to Melissa - CFC (created from color) for bringing this to my attention.
So I have corrected the image. I had to go in with a C3. Now the paper was fairly saturated already so couldn't do much. Always better to get it right the first time I guess and go with gentle touches on paper instead of pushing the color in.
Oh I found that viva paper towels do such a great job of picking up the pooling colors on paper.
I used to use this while watercoloring as this paper towel doesn't leave fiber bits on the image and it is smooth so also does not leave texture and is thicker than tissues. Well it does help with copics too.
My corrected image with C3 and then E11 added. I did not want to blend too much because of the blotching that occurs with too much saturation
