Here are two versions of the same painting.
I did this first one back in 2001. I overdid the foreground…it was getting too dark and the watercolors were on the verge of becoming mud. I wasn’t happy with it and one day I figured I’d do it again.
Fast forward 13 years. I finished the painting below this week. And once again, I overdid the foreground, and the watercolors were on the verge of becoming mud. .
But I don’t feel the love. Over a decade of painting later, I’m still not not happy with it.
But this time I’m not doing it again.
I”m DONE with this one.
Some paintings are just…meh…..not meant to be. .
