Finished. Have to stop pecking at this; the top left is looking overworked to me ... I may crop it more tightly. And I think I'll try it again ... starting with a light wash and glazing.
I've taken two workshops with Mel Stabin and he noticed how I often fail to paint to edge, as on the right here. I don't know why I do that--just sloppy, I guess. One teacher of mine suggested lightly drawing a frame within which to paint, which is a good idea.
So, which do you prefer, the full-size or the cropped version?
