more work today on "woman in landscape" / by Philip Tarlow

SITE-12-5-17 Woman in Landscape CROP 3 pm.jpg

3:10 PM: after looking at woman in landscape in the house yesterday, i saw where more work was needed. i almost entirely re-painted the figure, which needed to pop more, as well as integrate more with the rock formations behind her. then i did more work on the water reflections. in both cases, i see marked improvement when i walk back 10-12 feet. the entire painting jells more . and the greater clarity of the figure adds an emotional kick. as well, i think the raison d'être for the grey gris showing through and, in the upper left, moving into abstraction, has become clear.
