Barn Owls Blunder

I have just left off painting because I was not happy with progress. I do hope I have not mucked it up (have not done that for a while). But after all the hard work and effort, it is so annoying when it starts to go wrong. My heart is on my sleeve, so I need a bit of time to reflect on the progress and whether I should tear it up or put it away for a few days and go back to it with a fresh eye. Not sure!

This has probably happened because I should now really be doing the illustrations for the next book in the River Friend Series, Book 5: “REED—ON THE EDGE”, and is obviously at the back of my unconscious mind and affecting my painting hand!!!

Should I tear it up, tidy it up, or wait for another day for a fresh look?
