This might be my favorite so far. But then again many times the last painting i do is my fav.
Feel like I'm mining for gold as well as silver here!! I used a palette knife to get lots of paint in the background. I also smudged the whole thing (I think I talked about this in the book) after I did my block in and then put more paint on. Feel like I've pushed the brushstokes farther. Walking that line between getting too messy and not wanting to be too literal. Been looking at Stanley Bielen. funny how you can look at and want to "do it" like someone else but can only go so far. As long as I keep painting and enjoying that's all that matters.
