When I finish a painting, I sit it in a corner and on occasion I look at it to see what needs to be corrected/tweaked. Well sometimes I decide that I do not like the painting at all and that gives me some choices:
1. Tear it up
2. Paint over it
3. Salvage parts of it and change the entire concept of the piece
After looking at the painting I did this morning - I decided I did not like it at all!!!!!!
Sooooooo i said to myself - "Self - which option will you select to correct this piece?"
I decided on #3! This will be a good demo lesson for my blog buddies in the correction and tweaking and actual revamping of a
What didn't I like about the original - EVERYTHING!!!!!
OK - let's begin. This is the original piece as done.
After close examination - I found the wave to be too big and it just did not give the visual effect of the thought I woke up with this morning - that being:
A monochromatic painting with a splash of color.
Following is the painting as changed, which is pretty much a complete change other than leaving the sky and the horizon line of the original piece untouched.
What I did accomplish was a complete COVERING UP of the wave and the design and implementation of some dune foliage ( I love dunes ) in the FG and then for the touch of color a small but very bright and obvious wave in the middle ground.
The first painting as completed has been altered and IMHO transformed into a much better painting which in fact depicts the thought I woke up with this morning in my sick little mind!!! :>)
Now I'm HAPPY
