Basque Dancer II (Alicia) 9" x 9" oil
This is my week for review and this is a situation much like yesterday's painting. I haven't posted it before because I kept questioning what I was seeing. Today, in a fresh look, I cropped it and realized that I had way too much information elsewhere that was irrelevant. It reminded me of being told years ago not to fall in love with one passage to the detriment of the whole. This was a good reminder of that lesson. I touched up a couple shadows and edges, then saw it as a finished statement.
