I admit, this is not a favorite piece of mine, and I think the earlier "Dee' painting works much better. Still, there's a quality of this painting I kind of like, the textures of the yellow with the canvas, though unfortunately most of that is lost in the photo image above. The central figure here is more cartoonish than I anticipated, but the general feel I was going for is mostly there. The yellow, too, is a bit brighter here than in the actual painting, being washed just a little with a light brown shading.
Still, even when I'm not overly fond of one of my pieces, I don't consider it a waste. Each is a learning experience, an experiment with the brushes and the paints.
