Slow going

Firelight #8. Slow going.
Firelight #8. Slow going.

I have had a busy week and no time at the easel until today. Compounding this, sometimes it is hard to get going when I am distracted by all of the usual demands of the day to day still lurking in my mind. But I finally got down to work and some of the slight detail issues in the face are beginning to settle. I started to work on the hands a little today too.
Technically, it is dangerous to focus on one area of a painting and let others languish like I have been doing with the hands. Color palette can drift, detail can be different from area to area, the whole painting can loose continuity. Let’s hope I can avoid these pitfalls.
I hope you’re having fun…I am.
