How many changes can you find?
OK, here's the original, again. My thinking now is that I was far too ambitious with this project. Have you ever made these mistakes:
1. I didn't take enough time with the human form, so it looks stilted, not natural.
2. My color combinations were not well thought out. Sometimes intuitive is NOT a good idea.
3. My perspective was off, and again, it made the painting end up stilted.
4. I painted the shirt intuitively, instead of using some form of model. Again, NOT a good idea.
But it was a good lesson for me, and since it's in my guest room, I get to look at the lesson every time I walk by it. Sometimes you have success, sometimes you learn good lessons.
Here's the changed painting. I don't know if I improved it any. I know I'm still unhappy with it. How many changes can you find? Besides the big ones, I mean.....
