After a final 3 hours working on it this morning I’m calling the painting finished. It’s as much as I’m going to do on it without getting into so much detail I’m painting every hair. I had to stop myself from going too far.
The photo has light reflections on it and patchy shiny areas which is normal with oil paint. It will all be evened out once it’s varnished just before December (keeping my fingers crossed it’s dry by then).
So onwards to my next painting which will be watercolour but it will have to wait until after Thanksgiving.
