Okay…….so I went up to the studio. This time I just eyed that darn video cam and left it alone. I started working on the painting again ’cause as anyone familiar with acrylic knows, it can ‘die’ on you overnight even if you thought you were so brilliant the day before.
I decided the part above what could be called the horizon line needed more paint, something. So I set to work and quickly added some more.
Oops….not the right feeling here…off in color. I am not sure about all that gray in the bottom left either. There is more here and there throughout the painting, but from a distance something may be needed. I have to guard against getting things TOO balanced though. Anyway…this layer is not right. What to do, what to do!
The only thing you can, just DO IT. If it’s wrong, do it again until something looks better. You can always paint over it. Layers only add to the feeling of good paint quality with this kind of work.
SO……….this is what I ended up with….for now…the gray stays although there are some subtle changes not too noticeable in this picture. Looks like another “Little Pieces of Land” painting to me. Nothing wrong with them, but I have done quite a few (31) and none of them small. Maybe it’s time for a good talk with myself about where I’m going from here.
