OK this one's definitely done now. Fiddled with the grass a bit and the flags a bit less. That'll do.
Think it was my day for 'finally finishing' ones that were technically done but I wasn't happy with. This old one finally got its final pass. I'd never been happy with the ground so ended up playing with ground and sky to see if it works better. It does.
The second Dugald: playing with head shape and eye position mainly: a bit of fixing tonal balances too. I think his side-burn is going to be a bit of an issue; how to make it not look like a bit of stuck on paper . . .
Thought this one was finished up until now (looking at it as a photograph . . . it's the equivalent of looking at in a mirror, gives a bit of distance). I'd been fiddling with her face and for ages and not happy about an all white background. So have fixed the background, and I'm happy with that. But I seem to have almost painted out her eye. Back to the easel then.
