Hello, I joined to get some advice on this issue. I am using TCM to teach myself realism and recently went back to my impressionist/folk style to create something. It isn’t realism (mostly from memory and a bad photo) but there is emotional attachment so want to save. I made an error in shading on a face. It was pointed out and I wanted to fix it. I have tried painting over it but I loose the likeness I had of my husband. Stranger after stranger appears... I remove the wet paint with a little linseed oil each time. Now I am loosing the original face as it is fading! I’m paralyzed- I don’t want to repaint the entire thing. What do I do to keep trying without ruining what’s there? Full painting (critique is great btw - but I know it’s far from perfect
and the specific trouble spot follows. Thanks ahead of time to any who take the time to advise me.
