Painting is such a puzzle. A series of corrections until you feel you can't correct anymore maybe.
I really wanted to push my color more from the life sketch the day before -and find more subtlety too. I felt it missed the mark.
So I worked from the life sketch and a photo and thought things through. I also really tightened my drawing spending time on it and meeting the daily drawing challenge yesterday. This is VERY satisfying for me and I do it quite often to further my learning. No other reason.
I like the second attempt so much more. Mark my words, I am moving on to the next painting puzzle as we speak.
What's puzzling you?
