Do you ever think that some of your old work looks better than your new work? I think that at times. Of course there is the fact I won't show some of the really old work, and I may not keep that promise either. I have intentions of looking at some of that past work today and working on some shading around the eyes, plus giving eyelids a second look plus work. I may think those paintings are better but I see they lack something also. You are aware that one can completely ruin work with reworking
This art work was done a couple days ago, it has more layering than I usually do, the small face has 5 layers in places and is not as smooth as I would like. A full napkin behind the larger face. I used the middle layer of the napkin as there was still light printing on it that I liked.
I have suddenly been struck by awareness, it is alarming.
