Taking my time and having some pretty good results so far. I picked up the small brush to start adding detail to the hand. However, it's still early in the piece and I don't want to get too caught up in details too quick. Tomorrow I'm going to try and use a larger brush to get back into the background and bring the entire piece up to par.
I'm basically using the same technique of thinning out my oil paints and glazing in layers of paint. Every now and then I'll take a large soft brush to smooth out the brush strokes a bit. Part of me likes the strokes and doesn't want it to look too blended.
