From the Top- Revised
16 x 20 Oil Painting
by Pat Fiorello
Often I will complete a painting, put it aside and then revisit it some time later with "fresh eyes" and notice something that might improve it.
"From the Top" was one of those paintings that I was happy with initially, but the more I looked at it, the background color was too uniform and looked flat to me. The background color was very pretty but maybe too intense so it seemed like it wanted to jump forward. This week, I made some revisions to give the background some more atmosphere. Added some more bits of warm light to some of the flowers and more darks to some of the leaves for greater contrast. I still like the original version, but the revised version has more mood and drama. What do you think?
