the view on our semi regular evening walk.
I started working on this at the start of the year and have had a wee battle over the last month as it started to take shape.
That moment where you really like it, but just need to do a little adjustment, only to go to far which results in a little frustration that you then react to by painting over that particular section and starting again....I'm sure many artists are very familiar with this repetitive process...(aren't they?) . Anyway the result is multiple layers that seep through and give a really nice dept to the piece, well that's my technical justification to my "going into war like" approach on this piece.
It is a common process for me when I paint an actual image that I have photographed or am very familiar with as I need to get the exact feel and look of the scene to feel happy with the final result.
Happy with it now, so brushes down and stepping back!
