Painting's a funny thing. I'm sure there's something in it for me, but I can't quite find it. Subject aside, there are lots of things I like in this painting. A brush stroke, a highlight, contrasting tones and colour complements, many of the elements work quite well. Still I'm left with a mild feeling of dissatisfaction. Then I look again and it seems alright. I'll just leave it alone for a time I think.
