Forever project final update
Well, since the signature on my project kept bothering me, and I thought I wanted more contrast, I just had to mess with it again. Other than being able to make the signature blend in more, maybe I shouldn't have messed with it again.... Anyways, I thought the title blended in, and the whole piece was too gold, so off to the paint shop I went. Since there wasn't any lighter bronzy color, I added a pearl white and pearl shimmer to my bronze to add more lights, removed the original signature as much as I could, then re-signed it, ending up with the upper photo. Now it felt too silvery - I guess I was just getting picky, but I decided to thin out some darker colors that I had used when I had painted the background with gel medium, then shaded around the corners. I also added more bronze (with less of the pearls) to the ladies to tone them back down a bit. It's finished other than adding varnish to protect it - finally!
