on the easel Feb 26, 2014

So far, so good. I'm content with the progress of this painting. I won't be painting on it again until I have time to do it justice.

If I know I won't be able to get back to a painting for a while, it is much better to leave it in a state that pleases me rather than in the middle of a problem that will annoy me every time I look at it.

Below is a photo of it in the foundation stage. I washed off an old painting and applied a black acrylic foundation for value and composition. Pastel is applied on top of the acrylic. I posted this with additional text on February 15th.
