There comes a point where I think I have gone too far and I should probably just start over completely. This tends to happen more often then not. What started as something more simple and beautiful, becomes messy and complex in places. The more I stick with the process and work out the hard parts, the painting starts to get better and the layers start to gel. After working through some bad patches and places that took a wrong turn a new idea, shape, line, color, or aspect starts to take the painting in a new direction. The challenges make it more interesting after all. This is the final word on process for this series. Up next, in a week or two, the finished series.
