I butt my head against the "try to improve what you've got" for too long. It's over. She's got to go! By that, I mean her head has to be destroyed and replaced. Her body has improved, and her head, for what it is, looks good on the canvas, BUT it does not work with the painting. That head of hers continues to sit so awkwardly on her neck.
At least yesterday's drawing was interesting, and not a waste of time. Actually, no authentic effort is a waste of time. All my failures with the woman's head in Untitled-10·20·2013 will now help me make this painting work. I have also gained some knowledge on how not to create the trouble I made for myself in solving this painting. This will help me solve all future paintings without the large degree of frustration I entertained in the making of Untitled-10·20·2013.
