Beneath and beyond.
Riverbed Oils on gessoed watercolour paper 9 x 12 inches
Soft and gentle, shallow river.
When is a painting finished?
Some might say...never.
Or until it moves on to a new home.
This certainly merits some thought.
I have reworked many paintings over the years.
Often because I am bored with them but sometimes after a day or so
when I return to look I can see where changes could be made.
The painting above is under scrutiny.
I am reasonable happy with the tree line, river and foreground.
The sky is possibly going to be altered tomorrow.
I can paint it darker, change the colour or change it back again.
I will let you know.
