Our second painting assignment was to paint a spherical object using a monochromatic colour scheme (after doing thumbnails, of course). My first go at it failed quite sadly: I knew Alizaron Crimson was going to give me troubles, since it's such a "thin" colour. I ruined it, however, by adding a splotch of darkness that messed the whole thing up. It's quite obvious. Anyway, I went back to good old blue for my second try, and that turned out much better.
