Tuscany 'take' 2 I should say! (Unfinished)
I like this one too by the way! Really like it. I took if from the stage shown in the photo below (other projects) to this today. That yellow sky was so wrong and as soon as I added "raging bull" as Resene calls this particular shade of red I knew I was on the right track. I actually bought it by mistake but seeing as though I can't remember what colour it was I had intended to get I will conisder it a happy mistake!It is soooo good to be painting something I like again. The first Tuscany really threw me, both confidence wise and engery wise. That's a long story though and to cut it short I got it back after my last effort and I have spent 6 weeks or so procrastinating over it. I just couldn't finish it. I was flogging a dead horse!
So I finally told the person who comissioned it I'd give their money back or start again if I could paint in my way. I don't know why I ever took it on now. Obviously she was happy for me start again, although I am providing the canvas in good will. She actually said "do what ever you like" and I have taken inspiration for this off a coaster and placemat set she owns so atleast I know she likes them! I wouldn't actually mind keeping this one...lol
PS: This measures 24"x36" (Not metric John!) and the collages were all A4 size.
