Vicki, I am a control-freak watercolorist, too. And I just was working on a painting that I think went too far with the background. The lion's face is wonderful! If anything,perhaps a background to frame his head on his right side.
I understand letting the watercolor do its thing, and sometimes it can "accidentally" do it better. I am also a control freak ... but I work with dry brush watercolor and would have to tinker with it. I am learning, though, that there is a time to quit before you are tinkered out!:)
Did I mention how super this little painting is?! :-)
Thank you so much guys for the encouragement and suggestions. I have more to do to it because I am just that way and it would be like going outside undressed to leave him like he is - lol.
I am agreeing with your DH on this one - just finish the dk bg behind on the left side and call it done - love the softness and the granulation and those eyes!!! WOW!
Gorgeous and inspiring!
Thank you Rhonda and jgr. Rhonda, I know but I just can't leave it alone. I have that "don't know when to stop syndrome". JGR I really enjoyed visiting your studio blog - good stuff!
Vicki...I am with your DH and Rhonda...in this case, less is more! I love the granulation in this paint, may have to order some.
He's gorgeous! I agree with your DH. Those eyes!
Vicki, he is wonderful! Those eyes are great! I agree that he does not need much more.
Thanks so much Candy and Christiane!
Stunning Lion! I know how you feel as for the wanting to detail everything, I fight it a lot. I'm a graphic artist and everything has to be clean and detailed, so I fight staying loose when painting. Thanks so much for your visit to my blog and I hope you return soon.
Thank you, I always enjoy my visits to your blog.
very nice Vicki. Less is more so don't do any more or very little to it.Thanks for the kind comment on my art blog
