Will do two more of the Koe Fish since the first 4 I'm not completely satisfied. No questions, just going  to do it.

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.

Hi Val..Just came on to ask a question to post....but thanks. I did do 6 of them. Must have put a good 30 hours into each one. But that does not mean at all that it equates to something real good. I pick at everything. I'm convinced I see faults and try to correct. Anyway..............the last two of the fish turned out pretty good...but...my question is going to be..........it's not drying even after a couple months. It's as tacky as it was then. Hope you're doing well.
