This week has been exceptionally busy with not a lot of time to devote to painting. So, I played with the last Sadie painting in between interruptions and reworked it using gesso and watercolors. The painting is now overworked and blotchy and still isn't correct in many areas but this has been a great practice piece as I studied features, light and shadows. I am hoping my next watercolor painting will show improvement because of all the "playing" done on this painting. A special thanks goes to Sandy Maudlin with a critique and tips that could improve not only this painting, but any painting. Sandy's main suggestion was to get the drawing correct before beginning the painting. Sound advice I plan to follow.
