Final Semester Week 13
I made better progress in the last two days on my big painting here and once I got everything massed in I could feel the space. Now it's the small moves all over and in some cases I have repainted things more than once to adjust areas to the light-atmosphere I want.
One of the benefits to working on panel is that it dries pretty quick so I haven't even had to use much liquin on this. I can see though I will have to hit this with some retouch varnish because some areas are sinking in pretty good. I hope to be done with this painting this week, just a few more good, long days and I can finish and move on to my last two paintings for the show. We have three weeks left till we have to hang our work.
