I remember my Aunt Jodi telling me not to let thinking interfere with seeing. The last couple of days I seem to have forgotten that advice when it came to the skin tone of the baby. I was thinking of the light pinks of a baby's skin, whereas in the picture that was not what I was seeing. nI wasted several pieces of material until it suddenly dawned on me tonight........see, don't think.
The material is the color I would think of a baby's skin in the sun, but looking at the picture, I wasn't seeing what was there. Also, the green for the pool was all wrong and the shadow from the pool was off.
After "seeing and not thinking"; I changed the pool color, the shadow and the skin color. I think the shadow cast by the baby is too dark, but I am not sure. I will finish the baby first then decide.
