Made some time this past Sunday to get back on site to work up one of my watercolors. Before I knew it I was making new sketches to expand the view and now I’m feeling a new oil painting coming on.
“Is it finished?” One of the more annoying questions and one asked of oneself as much or more than anyone else. In this case, yes, it is finished.
Most of the time I just get to a point where I’m satisfied to leave the painting alone. This time I was quickly reaching a point where I was telling myself “Stop! Stop! You’re going to fuck it up!” So I stopped. It’s finished.
