the effect of colour

These three heads look at me every day.
What more should be done?
There is a moment when things are clear.
An injection of colour seemed obvious yesterday, but only yesterday.
Today the colour was applied.
Which colours were also obvious, they sort of fell together.
The faces will more need work when the colour has dried, and the edges can be adjusted easier.
Looking at them now they look more theatrical and rather less like asylum staff.
It's a slow business this painting . . . .
