In Progress- Failure Ahead
The work I mentioned doing yesterday. Now I have pieced (ugh) the whole thing and cut the painted planets out and placed them on the surface. I don't particularly like the border on the far left. Will take it off. I guess I have to replace it with something so the whole thing doesn't pitch to the right. I think the top border will look better when the left one is darker. Now that the center planet is larger the composition works better. I may or may not repaint the planet on a new piece of muslin. This whole thing is much darker than the photo shows as the flash lightens everything with the bounce back light. I've almost come to the conclusion that anything I make this month will be a failure. Mercury in retrograde. Please stop!
