We had a very pleasant weekend, and all I wanted to do this morning was curl up in my chair with a cup of coffee and read some more pages of A History Of The Modern World, which I've had since my undergraduate days. But I got started on this instead. The #6 blending brush I'd bought on a whim months ago was extremely useful in smooshing the paint around on the tiles; I wanted to brighten them with more vivid color in some places, darken others, and add a few highlights. The sunlight streaming through a skylight makes a dramatic difference to the composition. Now I need to step back— let it dry— assess the situation going forward. Who knows; I might finish this before the end of 2021.
