Repetition seems to work for me (except for photography). Here is the 4th version of this painting and the one I like the best. Sometimes the first one is the best, but I think the more familiar you are with the subject the chances are you will try something new.
8x10 - (the photo has a little glare on it-my photographic skills are not improving)
I've been posting my paintings on the 30 day Challenge website and Daily Paintworks.
Today is day 12.
