Wow - this piece had me tearing my hair out. It went down more paths then I thought possible. So much for my paintings just "flowing out of me". Ha!
Below is where it went between yesterday's post and the finished piece above. It had become much too pale. And I knew I must flip and re-work when I saw a giant bird taking flight. Someone had mentioned it brought to mind a park - and I had felt that as well - so I kept that in the front of my mind and carried on. There are a couple of places I need to add a few more strokes of colour, but for the most part it is done.
