You hate it?? It's a very evocative painting, very moody. Good policy then, to carry through. Some years back I had to decide that if I started something I had to finish it (drawings anyway.) Because nothing ever got done otherwise.
(itches under the collar of the scratchy teacher suit) Well good then. There's a kid somewhere here who does awesome pencil work but her entire gallery is WIP. From years. I let her know a thing or two you can be sure.
Ah, the double-edged sword. But if half the piece is white paper and guidelines you can figure there's a bit more to be done. But you can fuss and tweak forever, I know what you mean. And it's an awful feeling to look at a picture and think it was actually better an hour ago.
