work in progress: the waterman IV

have not progressed significantly on The Waterman, since I’ve been distracted by domestic issues and also by the making of my new website. the piece also came out with more details than I was expecting, and this is always very time-consuming. I’ve been enjoying working at it, although I tend to slow down when I take too long in a piece.

decided to change the little fishes at the bottom. I didn’t like the former ones, which were more abstract.

I think I should start working in the other panels (did I say that’s supposed to be a triptych?) in order to find more fuel to continue the job and also to give my eyes a little refreshment. when you keep working for too long in a piece your eyes tend to get a little tired; seems that your sight get a little “distorted” and you start to misjudge things. colors don’t look right anymore, you feel that some details shouldn’t be there, it’s a total mess. nothing like changing your focus a bit.
