Begonia

I will write more about this painting in a little while....I have got to gather my thoughts.....:;  My goodness have I learned a ton from painting this painting.....Whew!  At what point does the painting become its own entity?  When does it have it's own voice?  It will tell you and if you aren't listening it will kick you in the pants!!!  Finding just the right colors, shades and tints and value was difficult.  When I look down at my palette and it is a mess I know it is time to wipe it down and begin with fresh paint.  What else I learned is TAKE IT OUT when it isn't working....wipe and scrape until it is fairly clean before adding more or different color.
