Thanks Jenny and Vic
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.

Thanks JR...i'm IMPRESSED by the responses on this one! I didn't think it was THAT good!

Ha...Pat, what do you know?  >:D That's our job, that's why we're here!  O0 So...when we tell you its 'that' good... (to coin a phrase from Dennis), "Don't touch it...EVER!'  :knuppel2: ;D
Cheers, Val

..just wanted to say.......i fooled with the edges (verticals) of the lighthouse another 4 hours just now. I had went over those same areas couple days ago too..for hours..those are what I can't quite put my hand on it.
I'm blind now...i'll look at it tomorrow when i take photos of my other drawing and new painting, BUT i am pretty sure it's still as good if not BETTER.
