Recycling, part 4
Stage 8: Working up a new layer of brown tones. Standing back to study what I'd done, I realized that the image is beginning to take on the look of a tree trunk, not a subject I had in mind for this painting. Though it might not occur to others, once the thought was out there, I couldn't help but want to diminish the association as much as possible.
Stage 9: So, now I've chosen to work with another color option and some changes in brush work, but it's not quite where I want it yet.
