The final image and the steps below showing the progressive steps in it's creation
Some people wait a life time for a moment like this. My wife said I should focus on the beauty of a painting not in what I don't like or could have done better. Every piece is a culmination of learned effects and mistakes that turn out to be the beauty transferred to the next work. I see the beauty and also see the progress. It is hard to separate the mind and the desire to achieve a goal from the final product. There is always the "Oh could I have done that a better way?" I am happy with this one, "Oh but wait... I have to do another one!"
