|Garden Fresh II |
9 x 12 Oil Painting
I recently revisited the painting below which I never really finished or more likely just gave up on probably a couple of years ago. Typically I don't like to go back and rework past paintings. I much prefer the excitement of starting something new.
However, the other day I picked this one up, sanded down any texture from thick, dried paint and applied a thin coat of linseed oil.
I decided to alter the type of roses, shapes and composition a bit. First reestablished the general areas of light and dark and then continued to refine things from there. The end point was Garden Fresh II , pictured above, which I am much happier with. Glad I decided to give this one another shot.
