Another painting I had to wait a long time so the first layers of paint gets dry. It took around 5 hours.
I made a few adaptations since I got the perspective in the background areas wrong, and finished it in a rush because of a lack of connection with it. The bark, the dark tree and bushes, with the slightly muddy waters add extra depth, in this paint in which I feel we do not see much in the horizon. Dark silhouettes, objects and trees in bad shapes do not seem to please some of my peers. What do you think about this? Should I use more vivid colors and lively subjects?
Since it was the last work in progress I had to finish for now, I will take a break in painting because of the lack of connection to these works. I should get back to portraits, try structures and learn from the least usual paintings from Bob a few days later.
