I worked a lot today, and decided this painting is finished. This painting is pretty dark, and relies on a lot of transparent effects that won’t be visible at this resolution. Oh my aching back, it takes a lot of work to pull all those staples around the edge and clean up the masking tape. But it’s worth it. I never quite know how a painting is going to look when I clean up the edges, but I think this one turned out pretty much how I intended. I’ll try to get a larger image up on the web somehow.
