The funny thing was, I had this finished yesterday. But, as my rule of thumb is now, all my paintings are finished twice -- meaning, whenever I say it is done I need to wait a day or so. Look at it, change things, then call it finished again! The second time is usually the charm - and without that revisit the next day, the painting would be missing some added shadows & details.
Interestingly, tonight I was listening to a recorded webinar from the past weekend (I missed the live broadcast). This was through Improve My Paintings and given by Johannes Vloothuis. You can find some of his webinars & work classes through this link.
While I was listening I was studying my "finished" painting from yesterday. And suddenly I had brush in hand and started adjusting things. Adding items to break up lines, and adding lines to bring the eye from foreground to background. What he was reviewing I was applying to the painting I was working on! What a fun experience!
I have a second painting started for this VPO in Ireland and should be able to post it in the next day or so. It too is finished for the first time - now to finish it for the second time while listening to the second 1/2 of Johannes webinar!
