Kept the patterns flat as the best way to deal with this painting. I think it works. I can see definite weak areas but on the whole I am not unhappy with the outcome.
In the past week, I have not done much creatively. I did draw a quick drawing in pastels. A view of our back garden but then the cold weather came back with vengeance for a day. Yep, that is right a day but somehow I managed to stretch my lack activity to 3 days (yesterday was Juniper’s day). Today was also unusually cold with freezing rain but I was determined to finish this painting today.
Tomorrow I am going to work in pastels.
