I didn't finished my painting this week. Usually I work out the composition in a drawing, and the colors and lights and darks work themselves out as I paint. This time, I had more trouble narrowing in on the color palette, and the lights and darks are still not resolved. I'll have to come back to this one to finish it. It's 10" x 20," oil on canvas.
Update 9/15/13 — This painting was purchased! I will still do some finishing touches, but will start a new painting to work on the things I was struggling with.
Update: 9/20/13 — Here are those finishing touches...
