The under sketch and first session with some color are spontaneous and dynamic. The results at this stage often give me a feeling of strength. Considering this, I often wonder to what extent I can leave it like this.
Sometimes I go too far in "cleaning it up", and though the resulting painting is not lacking in merit, It loses some of that rawness. I still need to go somewhat further but can I keeep this power?
This one, I haven't touched for ages. I think I was afraid to finish it at the time, maybe feeling I was not up to it skill-wise. I worked on it this afternoon and I think maybe one more session needed.
