The most difficult painting yet


While this painting was a lot of fun and I really enjoyed the insane amount of detail, it was to date, the most difficult one. As I showed in a previous post, I like to lay it out by drawing the placement of elements within the scene. These shapes and sections are usually easy to follow, but this one reminded me of doing a puzzle. Every time I would have to mix some paint or get more on the brush, I'd lose my place and by the time I found where I was going with it, I'd have to get more :)

  1. I love it and I know what you are talking about. I have the same problem when I am embroidering with very similar coulors.

    1. I hear that! Stitching would be very easy to lose your place, maybe even more so than this painting! Hats off to you :)
