(a small reflection faraway the well deep)

New year's day and I'm painting! Sooner than expected. I think I am addicted. :)

20x20" canvas not stitched. Acrylic paint.
Automatically I am mistrustful and critical.
Determined to bash on until I get something I can live with, though.
This one took about 3 hours.
Wow! 2 hours! Compare to 5-6 months of layering oil glazes!
But. It looks like it was done quickly. Slapdash, even.
Cartoonish, lacking depth.
Maybe I could do some layering on it yet, maybe I could make the colour richer, improve the line quality, maybe I could, maybe maybe....!

... maybe I could not be so hard on myself.
