I am working on finishing up this wildflower meadow painting for the show this coming weekend. I have turned the painting upside down - that is how I complete the line work after I have applied the color. For me, this is the most satisfying part. I go over the whole painting, outlining every tiny little shape and shadow. After the whole painting is outlined, I go over the whole painting AGAIN to make sure that every single line is connected and there are no breaks between. When I'm done, I feel like I've painted the piece three times and it becomes even more personal to me. On a painting this size, I would use approximately 120 pens.
