The bobble-headed freak mistake

It’s been a while between boards, but after 2.5 weeks of painting and re-painting I finally finished the Fish Wife II. The whole piece was a bit of a struggle and some areas had to be re-painted multiple times because I couldn’t decide on the colour scheme. Then just as I was finishing up the final black outlines, expecting it all to come together, I dusted off my hands, stood back and realised I’d painted a bobble-headed freak instead of a fish lady. It took a day to repaint, but by gad it was worth it.
