Beneath and beyond.



Riverbed   Oils on gessoed watercolour paper  9 x 12 inches

Soft and gentle, shallow river.


Studio Musings...

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.
