Well, as often happens with me, after living with the “finished” painting for a day or two, I saw a couple of teeny adjustments I wanted to make on this. That’s why I never varnish right away; if, after a few days, I see nothing to change about a painting, then and only then do I consider it truly done. Every now and then I’ll see something I wish I’d done differently a year or so later, but oh well.
So here’s the final final version. See if you can tell what I changed (one thing is totally obvious, the other thing may take a little more study) and I’ll reveal what I did in the next post. Fun, huh? Kind of like an activity in Highlights!
And now, on to another little piece ... I love it when I can spend all day painting!
