I have been doing more on my big paper painting ‘ A Walk in the Woods’. One of the challenges of painting is knowing when to stop and I feel like I may have ‘tidied’ it up too much already and lost some of the freshness. Usually it is the paintings in oil on canvas that get overworked, the acrylic paintings on big paper are more spontaneous, do it, leave it.
This painting is still not quite as I wanted it but I will try and leave it before I ruin it altogether!
This is the sketch that I worked from, and the one below is another view of silver birches, nearby.
