Work in progress, Day 4

Work in Progress, day 4. Did some backtracking to recapture subtlety, and feel more in control of the painting. Maria Lyle has suggested working on 2 or more paintings at a time, and I can see her point, so I'll give that a shot. I do tend to get obsessed, so spreading attention between 2 or more should help.

This painting was an experiment to see if I could take my fun art style and kick it up a few notches ie., larger and more complex. I feel there are are two kinds of complexity: complexity of composition, and complexity of texture and/or pattern within a simple composition. I tend toward the former, whereas the latter may be easier to control.
