Pentimento, nice word

Pentimento – Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

A pentimento (plural pentimenti) is an alteration in a painting, evidenced by traces of previous work, showing that the artist has changed his mind as to the composition during the process of painting. The word derives from the Italian pentirsi, meaning to repent.

Mine don’t show the traces but I repent, repent, repent.

What follows is the previous saved version.

They both show that computery paper texture. I thought I’d unashamedly leave it there. Canvas texture is ok, so why not this?

Perhaps I’ll repent later!
