PAINTING THROUGH SOME OF THE DETAILS of the ship and upper dress slowed me down this week. I didn't get all the time on the canvas I would have liked. The grass and fall leaves were calling for attention along with a few other life needs.
I have not been content with what I have planned for the sky, so I did more visual research and will be adding some distant mountain shapes to frame Brita's head. I will work through her jewelry on the dress and paint most of the dress before moving on to Kasey's figure on the right. Those are my goals for this week - mountains, dress and jewelry and begin painting on Kasey. Realize that nothing in the painting is complete until the whole painting works together. I will tweak values, color, edges and details until I exhaust all that cries out for adjustments. Then someone other that me needs to hit me on the head with a Viking club to say "STOP! IT'S FINISHED"!
