Here is an updated picture of my painting after today's eight hour session! I definitely have looked at it too long. At this point I'm going to let it dry and revisit it in a week or so. I am wondering if there is any ingenious way to waterproof it so it can hang on the veranda. It would be totally exposed to the elements so it's a totally impractical idea but if anyone has any suggestions let me know! A good coat of lacquer might do the job!???
