After looking at the blog post yesterday I realized the color values in the first cactus painting were nicer than what was changed over the weekend. So that's where I started working today.
Its not finished yet. I'm not happy about those warm blue cactus and felt myself getting frustrated. That's a sign it's time to take a break. I took a photograph which always seem to help me see things differently. Tomorrow I'll look at it with fresh eyes and figure out what to do. Who said painting was easy? Make a mental note to self.
