Yep it's true, I sat and looked at this painting for about a week and finally decided I did not like the new style I was trying.
That happens to me often with a piece of artwork, I will hang it up and look at it in different lights and then certain things will start to irk me about it.
So yesterday I just put it back on the easel and started addressing all the areas that had annoyed me this week and here is the final updated result!
As you can see I added a few things...a thin gold band along the edge of the halo and on the beaded neckline.
I worked on the eyes and added some lighter streaks in her hair. Then I went to work on the wings adding a light linen color, then shading with some Golden fluid raw umber.
I definitely like this version better than the previous one I posted about.
I hope everyone is planning a fun St. Valentine's Day!
I wish each one of you a wonderful day filled with Love!
P.S. And a little chocolate doesn't hurt either!!!
