Another Pinocchio Head, Brady Bunch Style

Pinocchio III 6" x 6" Oil on Canvas Panel, Purchase Information SOLD

The more I paint, the more ways I discover to mess up a painting. Heheh. And it's interesting, because sometimes the things that will mess a painting up-- are the exact same things that will make it really GOOD. Things I did that may or may not have messed this painting up: Not using more than 3 hours to do it, using only olive green in the underpainting, pushing the shiny high-lites a little harder and restraining myself from over-blending. Actually, I'm not entirely unhappy with it, I guess I'm just realizing how much there is yet to learn.
