I’ve been very busy with my graphic design business for the past few weeks, so I haven’t had time to paint. See bottom of page for example of my commercial work.
However, when working on Scott Fraser’s website, I asked for a critique of the ‘What’s My Line’ painting. The advice was so illuminating and compelling, that I’ve begun reworking the piece.
Comments included making the background more of a consistent gradient, having the rose actually floating above the ground, and working on my edges.
I don’t usually radically re-work a piece the way I’m doing here; either it’s ‘done’ or abandoned. But I’m realizing that I shouldn’t be in a rush to get these things done. Sometimes it pays to continue to reworking the piece; I hope this is one of those times.
