It seems the more I paint, the less satisfied I am with the results. Therefore, I keep working on a small painting a lot longer than I originally planned. This one for example, by the time the picture was completed, it seemed that the rose was too overpowering and it needed to be toned down. Then, the leaves had to be adjusted to conform with the flower and because I was painting by a window, the light changed. So now, I have to wait until tomorrow.
