I will probably put a couple more glazes on the still life part but essentially I am happy with it.
Looking back is not something I like to do, but looking back to the Mona Lisa of Assignment 1 I can see now how far My technique has improved over the time of this course. I would have ended up with a Mona Lisa but I would still have been working on it now and it would have been heavy with repaints. I painted this several years ago before I ever started this course, it won prizes and although I can appreciate the heaviness compared to the Caravaggio study I am still proud of it.
