I fixed it

It has become no secret to my friends, green is not my favourite colour to work with, especially after some last week’s first painting attempt. And there was one painting last semester that didn’t match the image in my head too well, lacking the depth and well shape I wanted. This was Travelling: Home to a Home.

Travelling: Home to a Home (Painted Over), 2017, Oil on Board, 91.4cm x 91.4cm

I used the same colour palette of last few paintings to go over it since last week went so much better. No regrets. I could have cooler and warmer tones in it and fade the distance out better than the green that just made the sky tinted. It may lack the vibrancy of the Welsh landscape I wanted to capture but now it feels a lot more real as a landscape to me.
