Not done yet

One of the most difficult stages in a painting is the one right before the end. It is that last push which can make the difference between an okay painting and one which you are proud of.
I have a tendency at this point in a painting to intellectualize all the elements which need to be adjusted. The grasses have to added, more warmth in the ears, whiskers etc. But I have found it is more important for me to step back and try and feel what else the painting needs. Stay tuned for the finish.
