As often happens when painting I’ve hit a problem. This is very annoying because it’s the kind of problem that will remain through to the finished painting if I don’t do something about it at this stage. The central figure just doesn’t look or feel right and I’m wondering if I should change the position of the legs to how I had them at the very beginning. Like I said, very annoying! Decisions like this should be made at an early stage, which I did but I’m now thinking I might reverse that decision. It isn’t too late to make a compositional change such as this as I haven’t started rendering the finer details yet but I am almost ready to do so. The best thing to do is sleep on it and make the decision before starting work on the painting next time in the studio.
