The Dark Forest of Fail!

I had imagined a spooky dark forest scene to paint today, and it might have turned out okay if I hadn't tried to put more color in it with red leaves on the trees. It looks like I'm bleeding from my cuticles! I went ahead and put a clearcoat to see how it came out and was very disappointed, yuck.

This darker photo shows the actual color. I used a NYC black as a base and the rest painted freehand with acrylic paint. Next time I think I will try an ocean scene. Luckily I will scratch this at work tomorrow so it'll come off then, phew!


  1. Kae I love all your failed manicures! This would look good on Halloween.
