Working into the paint.

As I continue to work into the paint. I am having fun making progress with the figures, lines, and shapes. As the end of this project approaches I am feeling the weight of the end of this project. I am becoming more ridged with my brush strokes as well as my compositions as a whole. I am also struggling with calling things finished. As I finish things I want to add one more line, a couple more dashes or even a another whole figure.

In a recent critique the advice was given to me to have more fun with my paintings. That I had forgotten the fun of the paintings because I put the pressure on my self to create a epic painting. Plot twist it already is a epic painting.

Here are some progress shots.
