I took a few days off. I have found that after I sit at my easel for several days.....I need a break. A time to re-charge and sometimes re-group. During that time, I place my wips (works in progress) where I can see them. It is amazing how much that helps me the next time I'm at the easel. I see what is right and what is wrong. A color that needs to be deepened or a shape that is a bit skewed. I take mental notes....and then when I'm back at the easel I make the necessary changes. In this case, the pelican's beak had gotten a bit to thick. I made corrections to the beak and spent some time on the background as well.
