You don't get to choose what you will see.
I'm still unsure whether I will keep it as it is, fix the background and some details, or completely re-paint it. (I would have continued working on it some more, but I had to send it off for my exhibition.)
I'm not happy with the fact that I wasn't able to capture the exact same features from the original sketch (posted on my Facebook page).
I wanted to paint this even sooner, but the art store was out of these oval board for a few months. I was so happy when they re-stocked, that I immediately bought all 4 they had left.
