I'd been working on this painting for a couple weeks, but interrupted it to take on the painting of Venice, which you see below. It's often hard to start back up on a painting once you've set it aside. That was somewhat the case with his one, but it also happened that I got some ideas about changes I wanted to make while the painting was hidden away, and I think that made for a stronger finished product.
Now that this is finished, I can get to work on an image that has been waking me up at night demanding to be painted. It will be similar to this:
I'll let you know how it goes.
