Here's the results of the first assignment. The main critique to the work was that it felt overworked or overconsidered. I can see that now to a certain degree, but I don't think the painting was finished when I had last checked in. I guess something I'll have to remember is that if the painting takes a turn, that means you should make a second painting instead of trying to combine two paintings in one. "Have the courage to know when you've done enough." Below is an early image to compare.
