  • "The moment you find yourself mostly satisfied wit
« on: April 19, 2017, 10:12:14 AM »
From a reference photo i had taken few years back of my wife. Changed the eyes 50+ times and everything else for that matter
The moment you find yourself mostly satisfied with a painting and think you'll "just quickly" do this or that, that's the moment to stop completely. Take the painting off your easel and put it aside for at least 24 hours, then reassess whether it really needs that tweak.

Face and eyes look great.  That upper arm looks thin and problematical.  The one area to the right side looks like flat skin.  Is it a photograph 'gremlin'?
