I think I have finished, and then I find myself discovering something else that needs refinement. That is why I like to put my paintings away for a day or so (or weeks, sometimes), and then take them out to look at with "fresh eyes".
Since taking this image I have lifted some of the colour out of the boy's hair so it's not so helmet-like.
I am liking the painting a whole lot better, now.
Okay. Time to put the painting away before I fiddle with it too much!
