The Downing’s Town painting is nearing completion, or to be more accurate, I’m going to stop working on it soon. I feel like I could keep painting it forever, as I do with most of my pieces. However, besides time constraints I have to consider the integrity of my work. If I did paint it forever, would it actually be improved? With my experience I’ve realized that the answer to this question is no. Still, it’s always a struggle to make a judgement call about when to stop working. Perhaps channeling Humphry will give me some ideas?
In the case of this painting, I know there are at least two things I have to do. One, is that I have to make the steps Humphry is on more distinct and less visually confusing, the other I will elaborate on next time!
