Forgotten the Way
4×4 oil portrait painting
daily painting: 365 day project
I played around with her a bit more this morning, and yeah, I think it was her hair that was bugging me. I also widened her face a bit, and added more layers to her face, made it rosier. It looked a bit orange yesterday. My camera didn’t pick up all the layers for some reason, and it looks rather flat. The painting looks better in person, but then, most paintings do, don’t they?
I’m glad I went with my gut, and kept painting. I knew somewhere down the road, I would have pulled this one down to revise it. I’m trying to avoid having to go back at the end of this 365 day project and fix all my mistakes. So, sometimes I need to slow it all down a bit, breathe, and take an extra day or two to finish up a painting. There’s no need to rush.
It will be available in my various online shops once it dries. You can contact me if you want me to reserve it for you.
