Innocents of Hope

Here is the painting as I would have liked it a week ago. She is done for all intensive purposes. As with all of my project my estimated completion is off by a week or more. There is always some amount of details that I forget about or cannot foresee. With this piece there was the angle of the feet, reflective colors, and color variation among other issues that surfaces. She is done now in the sense that I am setting her aside. I was confident in the completed state until I set her outside to photograph. In the sunlight I could see that there were spots throughout the piece where the paint went on too thin and dry leaving tiny specks to show through. For the time at least I am moving on to stretch a new canvas.
