Weekly Painting Week 20- is it done yet? Really Big 57 Chevy Bel Air

When painting a thing with a lot of detail, how do you know when it’s done? You know when it’s overworked, that jumps right out. But when to stop painting- ah…that’s the trick. Here is a quote, attributed to a lot of people including Picasso-  “A painting is never finished, it escapes from the easel.” I have been working on this Chevy on and off all year (well, I did other things too). Not sure whether to keep working on it or wrap up. It is 40 x 60″, so it is taking up a lot of room while I figure it out. ’57 Chevy Bel Air, oil canvas.Image
