It's getting there!
Since I last posted I have had an enforced painting break with sick kids being home and as much as I like painting it's not about to come first!
It dosn't look like it but there's been 2 late nights go into this since my last post. Repainting.
I have redone the villas and the top field of flowers, thinned flower bushes, dulled some reds and added some green! The fields are now ready for planting:)
I wasn't happy with it and it was kindly pointed out (thanks DH) to me that it wasn't my best work!
After initial justifications that it was 'just a different style' I realise that he was right and armed with that knowledge I knew I could improve it. So I have. Well I think it's an improvement! Lol. It's a real challenge painting something that is out of my comfort zone...but with challenges there's potential for real growth and with growth, achievement so I guess I owe it to myself to move out of my comfort zone now and then!
For a comparison I have posted a photo (above) of my usual style.
Both paintings are 1oocm x 80cm. (Definately too big for the scanner!)
