Well, I tried to work on the background but those of you who have worked on yupo know that it's hard to make changes without getting changes elsewhere due to the nature of the "paper" and how it runs a bit here and there. So the background isn't looking too good right now. It's wet (I went in and tried to fix the ugly places again and you can see where the paint is already running from the tree limb to the background) and I'll have to wait until it dries completely before I go back and see what I can salvage from it.
I may have to admit defeat and just wash it off and start over. I think it's easier to work on yupo from start to finish if you can, rather than go back in later and make changes.
Did you get up early this morning before sunrise to see the total eclipse of the moon? I did, watching it slowing being covered with a reddish brown shadow. Then it stayed that way from 5:55 - 6:25 am when I finally gave up and saw that it was going behind a lot of trees and the sun was rising, lightening the sky. I didn't get to see the end where the shadow uncovered it again. It was worth getting up at 5:45 this morning to see it, though.
