This is something I started last month. It's one of those paintings that requires thousands of decisions (well, they all do, but this one seemed to require more than usual). Before I start painting something this labor intensive, I work out the major decisions in Photoshop; move things around, take things out, change colors, etc. As I painted this, I found myself wishing I'd considered a few more options. I'll have to try out those ideas on another painting, though, because I'm ready to call this one finished.
