Tedious tediumtweedle tweedle dumb....
When I get to this stage in a painting - I often wonder "what am I thinking?". Seems like I have been working on this piece forever. Don't get me wrong.. I love the complexity and all the detail. It is just at this point I am getting excited for the next painting - without any shade of pink. Have I mentioned that each petal takes at least an hour to complete?
This painting will require at least three more sessions to complete. My favourite stage is when I look at the work and start to balance the colours - a little bit more colour here - and little more darks in there. This really makes the painting pop.
I have my next painting sketched out - actually I have three more sketched out - two more watercolors and one in oil. May have something to do with my anxiousness to complete this.
