Ruth Young and Alive
Yes I painted over the last painting(scroll down) because it really wasn't Ruth. As a painter I see how I can easily kid myself and make justifications for what's developing badly. We artists have great imaginations. I don't like this painting better than the last two renditions but I have to be honest- especially in commission- work it really looks a lot more like her. I am exhausted from looking and adjusting, but this is the only way to learn. I should have kept the first painting(two scrolls down)and started over, the first one was worth keeping.
