Every painting finished teaches me something new, gives me new eyes. Experience and practice allow one to refine techniques and look for more nuances of color, value, and tone. The result? Last week I decided to take Spring Redeems off the wall, where it was drying, and give it another go. I wanted more contrast, more subtle color, and more movement. I completely reworked almost every square inch, adding light, glazes, and more leaves. I’m much happier with the result. The watercolor-like layers give it a richer feel – much more like what one finds at the pond in spring. Details are below, along with its previous incarnation.
