I finished the demonstration painting this evening. It took 3 additional hours to complete, in addition to the 4 hours yesterday and the 1 hour at the demonstration - a total of 8 hours. That negative painting process sure takes a long time - but I love the results and in my estimation, it is worth it.

This painting is still a little busy, but I think - because of the busy subject- I will not work into it any more. I left some of the areas untouched (other than the original pour.) I am not ruling out the possibility that I will work into it some more after I study it for a few more days, so will not sign it for a while.

As I said in the first post, the painting is 14" x 18" and it is painted on 140 lb. FabrianoArtistico cold-pressed watercolor paper.

I think it is gorgeous, Barb. This is one of the few negative paintings that I've seen that I couldn't tell it was painted in that manner. I love it but do look forward to seeing if you do anything else with it (more because I cannot imagine what it might need!)...

Thanks, Sherry - I am finished with it - I think if I were to work any more into it that it would be overworked.
