Archeology of My Current Painting:

Undercoat - all complementary colors. I was happy with my choices.

Strong! Good depth and vibrancy. The "empty area" in the center works well.
I like the open contours of areas of color

Too busy! The universal use of dabbled paint and pattern flattened the painting.

Looking for contrast between "noisy" and quite areas.

Present coat of paint.

I'm not sure if it is done yet. I liked the freshness and excitement of it's second coat of paint, and the quite sophisticated colors of the present coat. Sometimes I wish that I could go back and make a clone of the painting as it was, so I could have both!

Layer 100
It's almost done. I guess. Please compare to earlier stages of this painting in earlier posts, Layers 4 and 8.
