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.

Thanks I appreciate those nice comments. Don't know why, but it's hard capturing all the values when photographing paintings. Some drop out. But nothing to get anxiety over.
Liz....yea, and another one on the way! I'll have three! College..wow! My son's family will be moving to N.Carolina (his wife's family lives there). In two weeks...about 8 hour drive.
 :thankyou:  everyone

Simplifying is the answer. I’ve been studying the importance of simplifying a composition, and limiting the number of values, also having distinct areas of dark and light so your painting will POP like you wouldn’t believe. I’m trying to do this now, not easy. Maybe more prep is needed like small notans and value and color sketches will help. It may have helped to do that with the rocks in my last painting!


With your granddaughter moving you’ll have to do FaceTime with her as we do with 3 granddaughters in Washington, California and Michigan!
God bless you and Maria! -Liz
