third round

Here is stage 3 of the lily painting...you can see the changes, but they are more subtle...small tweaks as the painting nears it's completion. I often get asked the question, "When do you know it's done?"...for me personally it's when I start "picking" at the painting and adding blobs and bits that aren't helping the overall cause...so when I start "fussing"..it's time to put the brush away for a while and just live with the piece.

Thanks for the article on painting in stages. I am also inspired by the old Masters series. I will have to try some of these exercises.
