View From the Bridge
I am going to do this one again...I am not happy with the results. Some professionals say you should only show your best work, but I think it is good to see the process, including the failures so that others can understand what is happening better. The reason I don't like may be just because the photo isn't as telling as the painting. I know the whole left side is darker on the painting and the subtleties of colors is much better I think a proportion or two needs a bit of tweaking as well. I love the subject matter, so I will try again. Also below is another drawing on birch that I did for an upcoming painting. I haven't done any small paintings in a while so I am rusty and I knew that going into this painting. I assumed it would be a wipe-off, but I liked it enough to photograph it.
