Two days ago: Nothing. Yesterday: One warm-up drawing, and work on "Woman with Flowers." When I am out of the studio for a day I go back in with a charge. The one drawing shows this. For what was intended as warm-up for my work on "Woman with Flowers," this drawing is well developed and finished nicely.
I walked into the studio a few minutes ago to turn up the heater and to warm the studio for the day. Yesterday I left the studio thinking I liked the overall look of "Woman with Flowers." I was surprised this morning to find the head too large. In reproduction the head does not appear as incongruent as I felt it was in this morning's viewing. I has not intended to paint on "Woman with Flowers" today, because it is so damn wet and slimly with oil paint, but now I think I must revisit the head. I do feel I need a day away from this painting to assess it. If I change anything in "Woman with Flowers" today I will post a photo of it tomorrow.
