I got it, finally. I am stoked about this one, it’s now my favorite. The darks are the most obvious thing that improves this painting. But it’s more than just the darks. There are layers of color, some covered entirely, exposed here and there. Sometimes when I work on something like this, something familiar and frustrating, I just mess it all up, use more frantic brushstrokes, or draw with oil sticks. I’m so glad to have worked through this one and will move on to the next.
