That's right, what I thought was going to be a 5 x 7 simple painting has turned into a multiple attempt stress fest. The face still needs some (understatement) work. I told my buddy Pete that however this turns out I will finish it. If nothing else winter is coming and I could use it to keep me warm. Just kidding. I find The more I study other artist's work the more I realize how technically deficient I am at painting. Compared to them I feel like a little kid with a box of Crayolas. There are some amazing painters out there doing some mindblowing figurative work. I feel inspired and punched in the gut at the same time when viewing these masterpieces. I'm going to pick up where I left off tomorrow as I'm spent for the day.
