here’s the painting as it looked just now. i’m going to take it to the house for evaluation and then it might need the green bit to be grayed a bit.
12:26 PM: mikela’s critique of the lower portion was, as usual, spot on. i spent the past few hours making significant changes to that tree covered mountain side. green has never been easy for me, and i din’t want it to detract from the success of the upper 2/3 of the painting. so here’s where it’s at. scroll down to yesterdays post to see the difference.
it’s always tricky to go back, the following day, into a painting that emerged in one burst of energy, as did this one. but if it’s going to happen, morning hours, when i’m fresh are prime time.
