Coming back to this painting after several months. My old problem was still there, over analyzing the painting which drags everything down. This has frustrated me to no end. Pondering over every step means you take very few steps toward your goal. So I tried something different, just work with the flow or work within the flow. This change brought about the improvement I've been seeking for so long. Also this is a new direction for me in this genre of paintings. I look forward to exploring the new possibilities.
