I finished the small painting, but I'm still not happy with it. I think I'm going to start over, ONE MORE TIME! This will be my third attempt at it. I see what is wrong with it and it would be easier to just redo the thing. It not even a great idea for a painting. It's a dragon fly for crying out loud. The problem - the composition is off. The larger painting is coming along. Maybe I should only do one painting at a time that way I can stay focused on what I'm trying to accomplish.
This is an adventure for me, something I've always wanted to do: to be a real Artist! So I rented a studio, lets see how it goes.
