 I love acrylics.  I was working on this painting with two figures and a dog and was happy with the first figure and knew the second one really needed work.  She wasn’t finished.  Then I wondered if the second one was just taking away attention from what I loved in the painting (the woman in the skirt and the dog) so took her out all together.  It was so easy to do!

I might do another painting with both figures.
