Daily Log Entry - September 24, 2004

Inpainting is a process of degrees; losses in the painting are gradually worked to a completed state.

The photograph at the top represents the before inpainting state of the still life objects at the foreground of the composition.

In the photo Below, the area is partially inpainted. With only the first layers of inpaint, the area already visually reads more completely.
