I submitted 3 works for an upcoming show of Instructors and Students from the USCAD program here in Saskatoon. One of my pieces was chosen. That’s great, and then not so great. I have been looking at my piece hanging on my wall and felt I needed to go back into it. Being that was accepted into this upcoming show I wasn’t sure if I would violate some rule by going back into it. Plus it was just reframed for a second time(cut out some of the side noise and focused on the painting).
In the end I called and asked to see if it was ok. Got the OK as it is my painting :). So now I have gone back in and this is the result. Much happier with it but still not completely. I played with varnish previously and I really don’t like how the light catches from a side view. It looks so muted, flat and drab. From the front it looks ok. So much to learn.
I have pulled a second framed one from the wall and I am going back into it too..
