Correcting mistakes

This is another commissioned drawing from one of the copies of my Tarzan book. I regard these drawings as a little practice that allows me to experiment with a few things that I never had courage to do when I was working in ink. Beside that I give myself a permission to make mistakes.
Through correcting these mistakes I am discovering new ways and techniques, and my mind gets more flexible. I am not any more afraid of mistakes because I know I will make them anyway. This is quite a different mindset from the mindset that is required for a proper application of my alla-prima painting technique.
