Still fussing with the background.
Thinking deeply on the background and how it effects the figure is not something that I worried about much in the past. Normally I would just paint what I see. But now, it’s something I’m creating with no reference. I’m thinking about color, texture and contrast. Tonight I’m going to have to return to the original purpose of this painting, the motive, and determine how to best serve that motive with the background.
What went well, what was awesome! Celebrate It!

Log it in the morning and stick to it.
