Really like this! Good job.
The moment you find yourself mostly satisfied with a painting and think you'll "just quickly" do this or that, that's the moment to stop completely. Take the painting off your easel and put it aside for at least 24 hours, then reassess whether it really needs that tweak.

A month? I tend to be extremely excessive myself when painting. Loose site of the big picture, not good. How many hours do you approx. put into a painting usually?

Depends on drying time and on size and complexity of the painting if there is a lot of detail I did an interieur van Dutch farm it took me a few nearly 2 months to get some of my portraits in one day paint
 but I don't paint if I am not like i
 I do nt have to I paint for living in one day one hour or one week one hour or 8 hours in one day or yust as I feel like it

Same...it's real easy to get bogged down if you begin to spend too much time in one area and it's not going well. I tend to rush things at that point but am trying to back off more now. Things work out much better with a fresh outlook after some time off.
