Hair and Face Continues
For me, it seems all my paintings have to endure an "UGLY" stage. I am there right now. A sort of limbo, I know what I am trying to achieve, but am falling short of it. Just a few more strokes of paint and I will see something to be happy about again. The likeness comes and goes at this stage. First I love what I have done, then start to mess with it too much and WHAM, I lost what I thought was a likeness. This is when I have to leave the painting and go for a walk or cup of coffee. Time to rest the eyes now and come back with a fresh perspective.
