"Three Queens" is a reworked painting. The original was quite heavy handed and although I wasn't comfortable with it, I wasn't initially sure what I wanted to do to correct the image. A sense of lightness and whimsy was my goal. So, I decided to brush off the pastel with a stiff brush. Then, using a brush dipped in water, I softened the remaining image. Finally, I went in and reworked the painting, using the original composition but with a more delicate touch.
