I have done some more work to the detail on this painting
This is how it looked at the end of day 19.
I have been adjusting small details to the figures and scrollwork. I have added shadowing to emphasise the movement of the scrolls.
I have adjusted the modelling on the blond angel's rear leg and foot. I have done more work to the red-haired angel's hair and face.
I also did a small amount of detail work to the abbey herb garden.
The painting now looks like this
Once a painting gets to this stage, I am spending more time living with it, looking at it and- occasionally- making small adjustments.
The painting is nearly finished and ( at some point) I will have to make the decision to stop tweaking it.
Then I'll have to leave it for six months before varnishing it...
Until next time
