I have a question for fellow artists. How do you know when to stop working on an image so that you don't overwork your painting. As I look at a subject, it always looks like it can use more detail even though it may not. It seems to me I can theoretically work on something forever. I would appreciate input on this.
Here's an anecdote on the subject. I took a watercolor class with an interesting instructor with this insightful remark. "It takes TWO people to produce a good painting. One to do the painting, and another to shoot him before he overworks it." Ha! It still makes me laugh with it's ironic truth.
Thank you, Judy
