I know it doesn't look like it (to look at the photos) but I have been at this on-and-off all day and most of tonight. Slowly tweaking with paint...and waiting for the paint to be dry enough...then retouching the touch ups.
|About where I started from today...adding in the black for his legs...that brush is so skinny, but my hand just got shakier as the evening wore on.|
|Where I stopped for the early evening...drying again. It needs a lot of touch up work of the yellow (glad I saved the mixture).|
I think I have four main problems right now...and they are all self-imposed...and not really real problems, just pokey stuff.
1. I have been working on this too many days in a row.
2. I am painting on a surface that is far from flat and even...all those inclusions in the background paper that have been painted over are a challenge for me to paint a straight skinny line on.
3. Tomorrow is the artists' reception for the big group show I am a part of...getting pretty antsy about it.
4. I just realized that tomorrow is also supposed to be the day that the juror results are posted for the show I recently submitted work to. It would be waaaay cool if I get something in, but I really really doubt I will.
Okay -- enough for tonight!
