DAILY PAINTING: At last, there's at least one coat of paint over the whole canvas! I've been concentrating for hours, so I have to just stop. I'll be able to see it with fresh eyes tomorrow, but right now I can't even focus on color, value, balance, etc. I'm done.
The light is gone; it's thundering ominously and we're about to have a storm. Here comes the rain in sheets!
I'm so tired, but there are brushes yet to clean. More work tomorrow (if it's dry enough), but we're finally getting to the point where some interesting decisions can be made. Once I feel that the figure is fairly well done, then I can remove those paper masks. Also, I think I painted over her ear! Ha!
