Imperfect woman meets a snake

Time and time again, I find that unplanned art, is the most fascinating. When I start with a plan, the piece is almost always boring and predictable. Yet it is very difficult to start a piece with no plan!
This piece I love because it is born out of an artistic mistake.
I tried to transfer the woman and was left with holes.
It was one of my worst transfers in a long time. I think I was being impatient and the colour I had put underneath was not quite dry. (What a thought… me? artistically impatient never?)
I looked at her unhappily for a time…
I searched for another photocopy of her…
I wondered whether I could draw in the rest of her face…
and then I decided… stuff it… lets see where it goes.
I like where it went.
