My brain hurts!
In this case, though, the pain is a good thing.
I've been attending a three-day workshop in pastel portraiture, taught by the amazingly skilled Greg Biolchini. Today was day two.
I'm a total newbie when it comes to pastels. It's a medium I've always loved to look at, but never tried to work in until now.
Sometimes I feel like my brain is going to melt and leak out my ears. That's how I know I'm getting my money's worth; the learning curve is steep. It's quite enjoyable, though, and as skilled as Greg is, he's a lot of fun and very genuinely a nice guy.
