I like it!
It is necessary to write, if the days are not to slip emptily by. How else, indeed, to clap the net over the butterfly of the moment? for the moment passes, it is forgotten; the mood is gone; life itself is gone. That is where the writer scores over his fellows: he catches the changes of his mind on the hop. Growth is exciting; growth is dynamic and alarming. Growth of the soul, growth of the mind. -- Vita Sackville-West
The nice thing about acrylics is that I can rough sketch both position and size by "blocking in" the elements of a painting and then go over it later and correct it. It's at this stage that I can test colors and composition.
I'm really enjoying this one, and I think it's mostly because I so love the colors going on. I've got Vivaldi and Mozart hangin' with me tonight while I finish this one, and I'm taking a break to go for a bike ride and get some clarity before I return to finish it.
