Step by Step
I would get a lot more paintings finished if I could get them to look right the first time around. I am able to see a work with a fresh eye if I put it out of sight for a few weeks and then return to it. I liked this landscape when I completed it, but as I looked at it this morning I saw lots to change. I started by lightening the sky and distant mountains. I repainted the trees so that I would have soft edges and added some small redbud trees for more interesting color. The one on the top is the finished painting.
