this painting is taking way longer than i was hoping. I'm not sure if it's because of the colors that are being stubborn, or just the fact that it's a pretty detailed item. the glass, the numbers, etc all make it very difficult... whereas with the cherries or fruits or whatever...they're pretty forgiving in terms of proportions and such.
the face im leaving for last because it'll be the hardest part. this was one of the paintings I was in a fight with, but we're slowly making amends. it is very frustrating to have a session on a painting but feel like I accomplished nothing. this is where I am after AT LEAST 4 or 5 decent sessions on it. i think im happy with the wooden crate it's on, and the color of the background...and partially happy with the back of the clock and the base.
