so it usually goes something like this.

1. sit down and slather paint here and there until the colors get muddy and i get frustrated. 

2. put it away for a few days.

3. overcorrect the colors. focus on shapes. get frustrated again.

4. leave it on the window sill for a week or two. consider starting over.

5. decide not to become a quitter. focus on one section at a time, background to foreground (don't have pictures of those steps, sorry), and finally finish.
