Still trying to save this

Postby Pooch » Sun Oct 22, 2017 1:33 pm

A reworking of a painting that I've already shown. I think it may finally be turning into something I like.

Since I did this on paper, I was able to trim it a bit which fixes the composition. A bit off the left and a tiny bit off of the bottom, and a much nicer picture I think.

Well, this is a very nice painting Joseph. I think you got all your elements right, including saving one of your straggly bushes. Extending the water surface to the bottom of the paper and placing the boat in a canted manner gives the painting the point of interest it needed. Nice job.

Thanks, Carl. I had a feeling that there was something in this worth saving.
