I find backgrounds to be the most challenging. Here is an example. I painted my girl and was pretty happy with how she turned out. Then I added a soft background. The first picture.

Felt something was missing so I added dots, and then stencil , gesso, text, doodle, etc. As I take a step back I wondered if I overworked the background. Looking back at the starting point, I miss the softness and simplicity. I do like how vibrant the second piece turned out but wondered if I overworked it. Sometimes the hardest thing to do is walk away and not mess with a good thing. What do you think?
