I need to take progress photos when I paint so you can see how the painting evolves. My favorite way of painting is adding layers and then scraping away most of the paint so that the underpainting shows through. I'm able to create a one of kind piece of art by doing this. No two pieces (even when the same composition is used) ever end up looking the same. The drawback is it can be very labor intensive, but then I'm reminded once again, art is all about the process, the journey.
