I've kind of been reading about other artists technique and practices lately, and came across an old article by Bateman about how he would start another painting when he was unsatisfied with his current one. He sometimes would have half a dozen in rotation this way. This approach makes sense to me especially when using a glazng approach.
I suppose this is the correct way when you work in oils since they take a lot of time to dry properly. So in the meanwhile you advance in other matters. I mainly use acrylics so put all my effort into a single piece and do not stop until finished. If I stop before, I loose interest and then will stay there forever.

I'm like you Federico, I quickly lose interest in them as I paint too. It is usually when they inevitably start to go south though. lol Having a few of them sitting around in various stages staring you in the face that you can pick up on is great for shifting gears mentally. Often times, I will know something is wrong with a painting, but can't quite put my finger on it. Then, like a week later upon a quick glance you see what seems like the obvious problem and can fix it. Perseverance pays off I think. Sometimes 20 or 30 hrs can be saved by 15 minutes at the end if you know exactly what's wrong with the thing. (then again sometimes not, some are beyond saving!)

Re: Cedar Waxwing WIP

Wow this is amazing - I think the big challenge with waxwings is to make them appear to be both smooth and soft, and you definitely accomplished that!

Re: Cedar Waxwing WIP

It is beautiful Mike. The background is so mystical and soft and it is great against the solid form of the bird. I like this a lot.

I think it's beautiful. The colours are fine, the feathers look right to me (not too pink at all!) and the foliage compliments the bird nicely.
