Day 68: Hunter Valley Boulder, Day Three

Stone Boulder (Watercolour)

Stone Boulder (Watercolour)

This giant, snail like stone is really taking shape and now I’m wishing there was something on, or near it, to give some idea of scale. We tried several times at the weekend to get my friend’s 8 year old daughter to sit inside, but she wasn’t cooperating… I think it could be a spider thing 😉

This is about as close as I usually get to a finished painting. When I stopped painting today it was because I couldn’t think what else to do. However, various parts look ‘rough’ to me. To be quite honest, I don’t know whether I’m successfully not fiddling, or if I’m actually avoiding dealing with necessary finishing that will complete the picture. So, I’m going to put it aside for a while and see if that helps… By the way, any suggestions and criticism, gratefully accepted 😉
