FRIDAY JANUARY 14

THIS WEEKS LESSON WAS TITLED ‘FRESH EYES’

When you are finishing a painting and you are not sure where to go next, STOP! put it down, have a look at it latter or come back to it the next day. It is always tempting to continue to fiddle with things, but if you do, you are more likely to mess up a semi dry painting  and do something you will regret latter. Come back to it latter or the next day with fresh eyes 😁
