A year-old painting revisited, repainted


I did this last December but I noticed a very 'unforgive-able' error, so I've discarded it to one corner.  Today, as I've run out of supports I went through my discarded 'department' to see if I can recycle any of them when I saw this.  Despite knowing that it cannot be saved, I still went ahead with repainting certain areas to see if I've progressed in colours and well, that's another story.  This re-painting or touch-ups if you like, reminded me once again, the importance of accurate drawing skills....which I must do continuously...

....but who can really compete with gravity?  this quote is a little 'impossible' for me...

"If you are not skillful enough to sketch a man jumping out of a window in the time it takes him to fall from the fourth storey to the ground, you will never be able to produce great works." -- Eugene Delacroix
