"Perseverance" really is done this time. I have been looking at it for awhile and just was not completely satisfied with how dark it was. I wanted the leaves to pop more than they were so I brightened them up and also worked on the flowers which are now 100 percent better.
My next painting is "Oasis", another rock and plant painting, the same size as "Perseverance", 20"x30", and also in oil. I started with an acrylic under painting just to cover up all the white. Unlike "Perseverance", I drew in the plant shapes at the beginning. I'm hoping this will make things move along more smoothly.
