That’s it–can’t do any more

maew sainate final state

I ought to have begun this piece with sable NOT hog bristle brushes. The latter leave tracks / brushmarks that it is impossible to get rid of in the later stages of painting. You could scrape the paint off to smooth it down but you’d end up with a canvas that sagged in the places where you did the scraping off. Also, it’s very important to get the drawing right from the outset otherwise you’re forever making corrections.

Oil on canvas, 18 x 18″, begun Feb and completed Mar 2 2019
