Cranky cowboy

Midday Sun Marshal

Admittedly I was the one getting slightly cranky whilst trying to finish this. Sometimes I become what I like to refer to as 'tonal blind'. It usually happens if I've been painting for too long without a break, suddenly I become hypersensitive to the tiny tonal differences in the colours and I completely loose the ability to see the painting as a whole... It happened while I was working on this... for several days all I could see on this painting was variations on the colour 'brown'. Everything just looked brown.. brown... brooown! And I just couldn't look at it. Until this evening. So here here he is... back with a vengeance, a squint, a lazy eye and a brooown poncho.
