I was told very recently to just “shut up and paint”, some really good advice actually and this advice comes into play very well with the 4th session on this painting because I’m running out of things to say about it. Or am I?

The more this painting comes together the more I like it, today I worked on the fabric and at first I was very daunted by all the minute details within it. But after working from larger to smaller shapes I eventually got it figured out and now it’s jumping off the page.
