Yesterday's major work was on the painting "Window." However, I am not altogether happy with the results. Overall I should feel a sense of satisfaction, since much was accomplished, but instead my main emotion is disturbance. The little man in the upper left is totally weird. He has to go. Yesterday I ran out of the time and energy to deal with him. Today he will leave the painting. I plan to rake the window light across the upper portion of the woman, lighting up her face and left arm. I am hoping the negative space of the upper left corner of the painting will properly hold space and surface, and thus make sense in the overall composition.
The two drawings from yesterday are good ones.
