During the past few weeks I reworked an old painting and improved it substantially. This week I tried another. There are a couple of new directions I am considering. One is to add more lines of water leading to the horizon. The other is to crop the painting to 18×12 from its 24×18 current size. I will probably try the first (photoshopped below) and then move to the second idea if that doesn’t work. I changed the trees at the horizon and deleted the water on the lefthand side. I am enhanced the aerial perspective by greying and lightening the colors as they reach the horizon and darkened the piece to express the mood of early morning.
What do you think?
