|9"x9" on Canvas|
A week or so later, I looked at it again and added some scrim and painted a little over it, but found the heavier scrim really hard to work with, so again, I put it aside.
A couple of days ago, I picked it up again and knocked back the heavy scrim with some modeling paste, but it was still hard to work with, so I put it aside.
Once again, I put it back on the easel and applied some tissue over the heavy scrim area and found, at last, that I could paint on it without that area dominating the whole painting.
It is worth letting a piece rest for a day or two (or longer) and not giving up on it, quite often, it is salvageable. After all, "A painting is a collection of a series of corrections" as Helen van Wyk once said.
