I finally got rid of my hang-ups about finishing the painting of Gurumayi and put in the shrubs and few details missing in the face and hair. I’m much happier with it now. I experimented with using a pallet knife in addition to brushes again, and ended up liking the results. It’s much faster than only using the small brushes I typically use. Here’s the painting: I’ve always wanted to paint a really large version of this picture. We’ll see if that comes about.
