Betty progress

Betty progress

When I look at a painting in progress, I will often plan in parts.  “OK, I just need to 1) work the darker blues and black into the face, 2) blend the side reds, and 3) add the highlights,” and it seems simple enough.  Then I start working and find myself redoing aspects that I thought were already done.  This week, it was like I hadn’t realized that  my glasses were smudgy, and once I cleaned them and looked at the painting, I thought “Oh, well, that’s just horrible, that part right there; that needs to be done properly…” And so, while I thought that this was going to be finished several days ago, I haven’t even gotten to the originally planned objectives because I’ve been dabbling elsewhere.
