Been a while again… I decided that the landscape image wasn’t working, particularly on the daytime painting so have had to make another radical change. Zooming in on the fireplace to simplify the image.
Its fun to start splashing the paint around again, though I’m beginning to get a bit concerned about the lack of time I have before the show which opens on the 30th October at Black swan Arts in Frome.
I tried to save some of the bits that I thought were working quite well but with a change in composition, it becomes quite difficult to do that. Maybe Masking would have been the way forward, but I haven’t found an effective way of doing it with oil on canvas. I think I’m going to reproduce some of the details, and it would be be fun to make some sort of digital composite if I get the time, but more on those ideas nearer the show… Here is the mess I ended up with, which I’m about to go and attack now….
