As promised, here is a photograph of the painting from last week after I did more work on it. I’m still not terribly pleased with the result. Sometimes it’s like that. It depends on what I have for breakfast.

In thinking about the difficulty with this painting I realized I changed part of my process. The painting was started using a large bristle brush. This brush brought more water into the Golden Open. It seems the Golden Open is quite sensitive to an addition of water. If you were attempting to work in a watercolor technique I’m not sure how well it would work. In any case, my preferred method is to work direct and fast even if I have more than a single painting session.
