|BEFORE: Coco and Freesias|
It happens more than we artists like to admit: There's a kind of discontent that can simmer when we finally quit a less than stellar painting. Maybe you shrug it off and move on. "Next!" (my personal preference. Making a mental note of what went wrong and starting fresh.) Or maybe you get attached and fixing it becomes a necessity. --which is what happened here.
I went in thinking to fix Coco, soften and blend him in a little better... That lead to repainting the background color... It had too much yellow in it which was sucking the yellows out of my focal points. Sweet relief, much happier with it now. "Next!" (or in this case, another before and after "fixed" painting in tomorrow's post!)
