DAILY PAINTING: The changes made since yesterday are subtle but important. You can see that I removed the mask, which created the wavy lines, and I made some color and value adjustments. I consider it finished at this point. I'll look at it again in a day or two to make sure.
It's called "Down Under" (not only because of our friends in Australia) but because I've been thinking about the fact that you often can't know what's going on in a person's life just from outward appearances. There are things happening beneath the surface--down under--that a person might be struggling with. This painting is about those depths.
