You've probably heard the familiar advice. Take a break. Put a frame or mat on the painting. Turn it upside down. Look at it in a mirror. Make sure the value in the underpainting is correct. (otherwise we cover it up trying to get it right.) Gradually build up your marks rather than making drastic changes. All of this is great advice. But it still is a challenge.
How about a little reminder from our friend Bob Ross.
“It gets to feel good and you want to just keep doing it, but the key is restraint.” — Bob Ross
