Sheds Near Alturus
Our art critique group met yesterday. I brought in a lot of my small daily paintings. There were minor suggestions, but each one was really important--moving the horizon a little bit...simplifying the background, etc. I made these corrections to the paintings today and they are really better.
Then I worked on this painting. I had been very unsatisfied with it earlier...I actually rubbed the whole thing out with turp. and listening in my mind to the comments about simplify, etc. I reworked the whole painting, eliminating two buildings and a tree.
