More painting experiments

Tried to be a little more complex with this painting. Looks overworked and hooboy did the colour ever suck so the greyscale is as far as this one goes. I find it hard to add colour to the painting after the fact when there's more deliberate shapes that need defining. Also I added a texture to it that I am deeply in love with but it obfuscated the painting too much. It's the burnt bottom of my old cookie sheet and it gave the painting a real.... cracked oil feel but I couldn't find a balance where it maintained the look and feel of the cookie sheet and still allowed for any of the image to be shown without it going way too dark.
