These later stages aren’t as exciting, but they’re more satisfying. The vision I have for the image moves in a progression that becomes higher in resolution. An ellipse or two is still getting corrected and the contrast between adjacent passages of value is heightened and glazes are applied to make color areas richer or less saturated . . . because I think I know where the image should arrive. These later stages are more about control than experimentation, but I am mindful of opportunities to take liberty, especially where liberty improves upon the source image.
