Oil on Board
Well, I am calling this finished! There are passages in this painting that I really like, but it still is not the painting I was hoping to do! This is one that shows me that I have much to learn! I have signed up to take a workshop in September with Kim English. Maybe I'll paint the subject again after that! I love how he works with color and value to create a cohesive composition. That is more what I was hoping for with this, but didn't quite get there. I think the subject has alot of potential, though, so will have to work with it some more. I think I get too distracted by the "bits and pieces" and lose sight of the whole. . .but, hey, I painted!! Hooray to all of us that go back to the easel time and time again!
