One of the things I've learned over the years is when a painting is horrible, keep working on it. Sometimes, your idea and palette doesn't mesh right away. But instead of giving up and throwing the panels out the window, there are several ways you can rescue it.
First of all, stop working on it for a day or two or even a week. Things look different when taking a break.
Secondly, you can always start from scratch and paint over the whole piece with white acrylic or gesso.
Thirdly, (which I used in this case) keep adding more paint and layers.
I worked on this piece for days and finally came out with something I loved. Whew!
