After leaving this painting alone for about 2 weeks, I decided to spend more time on finishing it. I worked on the detail using my Pro Arte sabel brush ''000''. It's a habit of mine, to work on a painting to the point that I never feel it's finished. So seeing my work through someone else's eyes offers me a great deal of clarity. Also, taking a good break from painting is healthy. Taking progress shots is the standard way for me to judge how far I've come with the work, or if something needs tweaking. I'm not always able to determine progress simply by looking at the painting.
Nevertheless, I'm content with this painting, and really feel that my skill is slowly improving. In the past I'd never dare to paint cityscapes and human figures!
