12 Eval­u­a­tion of the paint­ing

ImagineFX - - In Depth Acrylic Washes -

I con­tinue to step back and eval­u­ate. I aim to cre­ate a flow through the piece, but the com­po­si­tion seems to be miss­ing some­thing to lead the eye out, so I’m adding de­tail to the bot­tom cor­ner. I shape it with a long-han­dled flat brush but pur­pose­fully keep it looser than the more de­fined flow­ers – this will cre­ate depth, help­ing to fore­ground de­tail.

Now I’m able to fo­cus on the de­tail. I tend to move from my easel to a flat sur­face. I like to be “over” my paint­ing at this stage. It’s now that the paint­ing starts to come to life, as I’m able to fo­cus on the fine de­tails that cre­ate char­ac­ter.
