I overworked my bird’s nest painting. It’s sad to say. I thought, “Post or not?” Aww, why not? I should have stopped touching the background several steps back, but it is what it is. Lesson learned for next time – I hope. Looking back, I think the problem from the beginning was the background was so loose and the nest so tight. Without realizing it, I think I was trying to reconcile that. I also struggled with giving the nest depth. And I didn’t have the right robin’s egg color, so the color of the eggs is washed out. I would have loved a bright pop for the eggs.
I like the background below.

it’s a struggle sometimes to know how far is too far. I am also going through this process! I do find that taking photos in stages helps me see what was working at certain times…good learning tool! I like the middle one!
Thank you. In the past I’ve noticed things that I needed to fix in a photo that I didn’t notice when I looked at the painting. I’ll definitely hold back a little next time! 🙂
I love the style of it 🙂 It looks just like a perfect nest!
Thank you! I ended up trying again, although I’m not sure which one I like better! LMK which one you like better.
