NEW PAINTING: "PEEL"

The beginning stages:




My process for The Monochromes involves several stages of adding and removing paint. I use large brushes, rags and palette knives (including the really large one I picked up in St. Thomas last week).

Knowing when a work is "finished" can be a challenge for any artist. I was tempted to stop here and declare it done. I waited another day or so, had a second...third...fourth look, then decided it needed more.




Final layering effects added....



Then, completion:
