I often overpaint and that's not a good thing.It takes away from the spontaneity of the painting. Case in point is this one-
I think the second one looks more labored because of the number of coats of paints I applied till i got the dress to be "okay". But the thing with acrylic is that it's forgiving and not nearly as brutal as watercolour,which is a saving grace in a way. Also,I have noticed that I have a fascination for ocean and anything related to beaches and water.Did i forget the towers ?. Wonder what that says about my subconscious thoughts !.
