Okay, I really need to put this painting to rest. This will be my last post of this painting, unless I do something groundbreaking to it. I made the necessary adjustments to my son's shirt and darkened the background behind him....although I'm not completely happy with the results. Also, I've decided the cornstalks are a bit broken up around the edges on the wagon. I've tried to clean them up, but I just haven't mastered negative shape washes. I'm not too pleased about the corn field in the background either.
Well, enough of my negative comments. I had big expectations for this one. Half of it makes me happy, the other half doesn't. On a positive note, I always learn something new from each painting I do.
