"Spots" redo - 6 x 6 inches, oil on gessoboard
Sometimes a painting tells you it needs a little more work. "Spots" is one of many in my art career that needed a redo. Many times, I scrape a board down after painting all day on it. I do the latter because I don't any physical evidence of a hopeless painting.
A slather of paint here, a background adjustment and a a few more tweaks was what it took to give "Spots" a sunnier disposition. Now, he's a very happy camper and I have learned a little bit more, so we are both better for the experience.
