4147: Empowered Day 26

I feel the end of this painting coming closer. I’m beginning to think about details within the painting as what is necessary and what is not and beginning to try and determine what is needed to communicate the message and what can be left out. 

Part of that is looking at aspects of the painting, particular objects, or textures or colors and thinking about what it looks like in its unfinished state so much so that it tracks away from the message.

If you’re not sure if something is done check in with the original message of the painting. Does it add or does it detract? Then ask, why does it add and why does it detract?

If something is distracting away from the message because it looks unfinished, then finish it. If it is distracting from the message, even when it’s finished, then remove it.
