At the end of the evening I had a painting that I had no attachments to and was very close to painting over it. A fellow artist, Scott Boyle took a look at it and offered some critique from a fresh perspective. I took the advice and spent a little more time adjusting and I'm glad I did. I kinda like it now.
I guess my lesson I learned is: paint fast, paint accurate...but don't sweat it. You can work the details later if you need to. And, it's always rewarding to get a fresh perspective from an outside source. It's so easy to get wrapped up in the parts of the painting that we struggle with and totally ignore the accomplishments.
