Stage 4: Completing the painting - the background, her hand and their clothing. Signing a painting has become a mere formality for me because even though it is signed I know the chances are high that after a painting "rests" it is likely that I will go back in and make adjustments and corrections. Its easier to sign it that way. I don't pressure myself into thinking that this is it, there is no going back. I also keep notes regarding the combinations of colors I used then its easier to rework an area if necessary.
Max and Tilly were such a pleasure to paint.
