So thanks for all your feedback. I've been painting away and this is how it looks presently. After seeing in on the screen I'm thinking I may need to lighten that patch of field on the left, midway. The first thing you want to do is create a good picture. The second concern is if the painting needs work - not to loose the spontaneity, the freshness of the original piece. I find the more I labour over something the quicker I can kill it, you know? So back at it tomorrow - but just a bit.
And thanks to Susan who in a note pointed out to me that she saw 3 similar fields of green to the left. Yup! Hello! I find our eyes are so interesting. I'm all for standing back and squinting and turning a piece upside down and all that jazz...and I DIDN'T EVEN SEE IT! Isn't that weird? Now it's all I can see from that previous post!
