|It is finally finished! Needs a title.|
At first I put a nice Viridian Green/Prussian Blue/Alizarin Crimson glaze over the top half of the painting, including the yellow shape. I thought that toning down the value of the shape would make it work. However, it was the seagull that was the problem not the shape, which I knew but was still not accepting. So glazing the shape didn't really work. Finally, in a desperate attempt I drew the brush down over the seagull and.... voila! It worked! As soon as I saw the bird recede, I knew it was going to be ok!
