My first and second attempts at real painting

I'm 67 years young and did my first 'painting' 2 weeks ago and it wasn't too bad. Encouraged by my first ever creation I tried another wet in wet masterpiece. WHAT WENT WRONG?
The paper was still soaking after 9 (yes ... NINE DAYS!) I wonder if it was the salt I sprinkled onto the canvas. When I tried to remove the surrounding tape after trying to dry it on a lamp shade the tape took off the paper! After 2 hours on top of the lamp shade the middle section was crinkled but dry ... the next morning it was really damp again ... soggy would be a better word!
I used proper artists 2 inch wide tape and a top notch brand of 140 pound watercolour paper.
I've watched countless videos on Youtube over the last few months and finally decided it was time to put brush to canvas.

Digital art seems a breeze by comparison Smile
