My Detail: Day 120

Glory 5

After just over an hour of work tonight, I’m not all that happy with the progress I made. Although, I did salvage a lot from the mistakes I made. It was looking pretty awful for awhile there as I was really messing up the trees. I think I was just adding way too much detail maybe. It wasn’t looking natural and I had to fix it. I shuffled some things around and after adding in that boat there, which I think looks pretty cool, I’m done for the night.

I had a really busy day today and just couldn’t find the time to get home to work on this until about 10:00pm. By that time I was so exhausted and ready for bed. I’m very glad I did a little work on this painting and I really can’t wait to get back to it tomorrow. I may even do those trees over again for the third time! ¬†Each time I’m learning something new and I’m beginning to think that less detail may be the way to go. That being said, while I was painting this tonight I had an interesting thought: I think my stand out quality is my attention to detail. So perhaps I should go all out with the detail because it’s what I do best. I don’t know. Any ideas? I think it’s time to get some sleep. I’ll pick this back up tomorrow.
