Thanks sno and Enyaw. Yes, I thought I was done, but Wayne, maybe you have a good point. Now I am in doubt about those smears. At least one of them. I threw the palette away. Maybe I need to fish it out before it dries.
Thank you trufflecat, I'm glad you like it. And thank you Joe.
Yes sno, isn't that strange and great? It's funny because I wasn't sure about that spot either, but when Wayne pointed it out, I knew it was off if someone else was also noticing it. I decided to keep that other spot though because I do like it. There are a lot of lost details in the photo where the colors are different and you can see obvious brush strokes, so it's not as eye-catching on that blue/light blue "smudge" as one might think. That other spot I fixed though--I agree that was off and it looks much better now. It attracted too much attention, especially to what is underneath it (another painting with a bunch of stitched shapes). That part was a face. Now it's upside down. I figure it's okay that it's somewhat revealed.
