Found this model manning the register at Dad's Sandwiches and she finally came and posed for us. This painting came together in large, simple shapes without many paintovers. God they look so much better when not overworked. I believe it is better to leave minor "errors" and retain a fresh spontaneous look than to "correct them" and and up with an overworked dead piece. I guess the trick is to know which things must be repainted and what can be left alone.
Tery Miura says " a wrong brush stroke executed well is better than a correct stroke executed timidly" and I guess I am talking about another variation on that theme.
