So I finally decided I was going to give the prismacolors a shot. I've had the container of 72 sitting on my drafting table for over a year. I've pulled them out of the container and looked at them like a kid at Christmas SO many times...just dying to try them. I drug them out yesterday....and.....:faint::tears::shrug: As you can see, it's 5:00 a.m. and I've been trying for the last 2.5 hours to do a drawing :no:

Can't figure out how to use them!? Do I use a light touch or press down on them? Do I do layers or not? Burnish or not? I tried to do some daisies on a really nice piece of pale mossy green Canson Mi Teinte paper and I just can't get them to look like they should? What am I doing wrong? Should I be able to pick this up easier or is it something that takes forever to figure watercolors? Can't keep the damn things sharp for anything. Can't erase them worth a crap. Don't know if a smooth paper would be better than one with texture? Should I keep them in a warm place so they don't break when I sharpen them? And DO you keep a point on them??? :frustrated:

I don't mind telling you that I feel like crying. I think I'm a true Taurus to the core. When I set my mind to something that I really want to try and be good at, I will literally try so many times that I burn myself out on it...but I'm stubborn and can't give up. And when it doesn't go like I think it should, I get so frustrated that I want to cry :-(  I want to learn how to use them so desperately, but it's just not working out. Somebody PLEASE help me :please:

Anyway...been busy getting ready for the arts and crafts festival. Am also considering opening an Etsy shop, but don't know if I'd be able to sell anything.

Hope everyone is doing well. Sending love and hugs to all my DA friends :love::hug::blowkiss:
