I have spent the last few weeks working on the Thomas Chatterton Memorial painting and sent it to the judges before varnishing in case any changes needed to be made. I was optimistic at this point as I feel it's technically one of my best pieces, and by far superior to the digital rough.
Sadly they were not entirely satisfied with my rendition from digital to large acrylic painting, which is understandable as it isn't an exact copy of the mock-up and expectations can be hard to predict. I also think I am somewhat hampered by everything being on screen at the moment, as the judges cannot see the physical difference between this and a rough digital sketch.
I have a list of changes which I will make over the coming week, and will then report back to the judges with my progress. I am sure expectations can be met with a few rounds of changes.
