This took a lot longer to paint than I thought it should. I'm not sure why it did, but I was really ready to be finished with it. I might fiddle with it a bit more to play with the value contrasts in the future, but for now, I'll just prop it up against the wall and look at it with fresh eyes as I pass by each time. That's how I usually catch my mistakes or see something that looks unfinished. What do you think? Does it need something more?
The color is actually a bit warmer than it shows in this photo. I tried to change it in Photoshop Elements, but I'm not very familiar with that program and couldn't find a way to change individual colors. I'm used to using my old Photoshop CS2 on my old computer, which is a more comprehensive program that has more controls, and it is really easy to adjust colors to make them match the original painting. I suppose I could upload it to that computer and fix it, but right now that sounds like too much work. : )
