"Nancy's Shed" inprogress

This is the outside of my friend Nancy's shed. The 1st block in of color had some perspective problems. In the last one I resolved the perspective problems in the shelf. This was started on location or plein air. I still have to resolve the perspective on the round vents at the top of the pastel and I need to refine the leaves. For me sometimes my corrections get worse before they get better. That is when it gets scary and I get anxious and want to quit but I know to improve I can not let my own fear of failure paralyze me. Sometimes I need to remind myself that it is JUST a piece of paper. This is a 18" X 24" pastel on Wallace paper and it is still in progress.
