Thank again Val. I mentioned in the otherpost i just did..about how i DID fiddle again, but on an old painting.
Thanks Denise very much.
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.

I get it Lillian thanks...would you believe I spent about 10 hours today painting!!! I think the most ever at one time.
And...was all on past paintings. 2...and 2 recent ones still touching up. I;'m out of my mind right now with gut wrenching anxiety.
But, i do think they are ok.   The thing with the fiddling is you can spend hour and hours and end up really only refining about that last %5 of the painting. But that 5% or so does make a difference.
I has quality to that 5%.
It's just so hard and takes so much patience working back and forth wiping alot too.
