sound of a flute over water II, continued / by Philip Tarlow

4:22 PM:we walked up the creek this morning & got back late. so I didn’t start painting till after noon, and just now stopped. I did a fair amount to this painting…maybe too much there are definitely some passages that have improved. as I look at it from about 25 feet, it does seem a bit congested. may need more breathing space. see what you think.

I think it will be helpful tomorrow to do what I suggested yesterday in my post: to start working on a different painting, either a revision of an already completed one or a new one, all the while glancing at this one until that moment when I am guided what to do. then I stop work on the new one, steal over to this one & make a gut intervention, which I swhat now needs to happen.
