I’ve finished my study, although I may do a few little tweeks here and there. I have learned many lessons and how to approach the larger painting to come next. It’s bound to be different in some respects, but I look for the next to be beyond the first. I will use the biggest brushes I have, occasionally even some 2 to 4″ and lots of paint! I’m looking forward to it! I can paint the undercoat now, because it came Fed Ex today. 🙂
This commissioned painting reminds me of the benefits of doing work for others. It’s pulled me out of my everyday choices for compositions and challenged me with something new, and I think I have gained inspiration from it, thank you!
