Morgan Weistling's "Dancing Bunny" Demo

Is it a good idea to work this way? Not for everyone. In fact, it is a risky way to work in many areas. For one, it could be really easy to lose sight of the whole, overall design of the picture. I see many advantages to working the "whole" painting at once so there is harmony in all areas.

This way of working is also bad for getting a nice, overall harmony of color. It's hard to paint a head with the right color when none of the other areas that will affect the head are painted.

In fact, this is a terrible way to paint.
