I have finally walked away from my paintings. I am not pleased with them and would have kept going over and over getting nowhere. But there comes a time when you know you are overworking things and need to stop. This has been such a learning curve for me in that respect. Having talked to the ever amazing Greer Ralston (check out her equestrian paintings!) http://www.ralstonfineart.com/, I am now thinking of trying out oils....and changing my pallette. Apparently, cadmiums are not ideal for figurative work. I think I've got the bug now....so much more to learn. So it looks like the art store will be getting a visit from yours truly!
