Working on my first oil painting in colour where I'm dedicated to seeing how patient I can be with getting it finished.
Back in October '17 I got some advice from people here as I needed advice on my colour palette, this was a great help @BOB73
I have made progress and am now working on a canvas which is a meter square in size, nice and big. I've got to the point where I need to start thinking of how to finish it, sounds odd but I'm aware that a painting can be over-worked.
see that initially I painted in the detail of the fabric, as I was
going to do an exact copy of the photo. But decided afterwards that I
prefer the dark background so am considering painting over the fabric I
Also, I think to finish the cat, I just need to now go
over him with some gestural brush strokes to indicate the direction of
fur, and add details like his whiskers and finess the eyes.
I would very much welcome your thoughts on how you would approach the finishing stages. I'm definitely on a learning curve here.
