Linda – Almost Done

Everything is pretty much resolved at this point. I just want to pump up the chroma in the sweater a little bit before I call it finished. That said, I’m a little concerned that the purple in the sweater is going to make the skin tones a bit over-yellow, so I may have to neutralize some of those tones a bit once I see how it all comes together.

I’ve heard it said that it takes three people to finish a painting – the artist and two people to pull him off before he overworks it. I’m trying to keep that in the back of my mind but each time I get a small portion really nailed it has this odd effect where I catch my breath for a moment and then realize there’s another spot, crying out for attention, that isn’t up to the same level.
