After careful review, I've tweaked here and there to arrive at what I think is now the finished, ready to be framed version of "Kananaskis Ram". Finishing, and knowing when you're absolutely done, is one of the most discussed topics in FAQ's I see on many artist's pages. We definitely are our own worst critiques and will endlessly add a stroke here and there to make it just right.
My goal is to create representational work with a painterly feel. Sounds easy enough! That urge to add more detail is a tough thing to ignore. I'm learning. If I liken painting to my experiences in playing jazz music, when there would be occasion to improvise, I think it will help me resist the need to tweak. Once you have ended a jazz solo it's done, can't be REdone. It is what it is. A painting, however, can be "noodled" till the cows come home! The contradiction is that sometimes you just do have to add those final touches. It's a fine line (or edge, or value, or shadow...you get the idea)!
