Ok so now I am at the point in this painting where I have to pace myself...don't over-do-it. Don't lose the quality of the line that you like. Don't muddy it up. Edit.
My biggest decision is whether or not to cut off the top row (it is on watercolor paper mounted to foam core, so it would be easy to cut on my mat cutter)
I think it works better as a square format. The top row is too disconnected, and I also think the figure facing the viewer changes the feel of the piece - the views from behind seem to be working better.
Anyway, I think it's inevitable...off with her head!
And this may be why I'm focusing on orange and blue lately - look at the beautiful leaves against the clear blue sky!
I did this forest painting a few years back that was also inspired by this time of year - very similar pallette.
