Looking back at painting you have done in the past and thinking “How on earth was I happy with putting that on the wall?” Is quite common but for that stage of your artistic development it probably was good.
So going back to old work and creating a new piece from it or working it a different way is good practice.
Today’s oil painting is from sketches made from the board walk at Barton Broad a few years ago, it was Barton Regatta weekend so there was a lot of boat movement on the water and I focused in on these two boats, and the fender/ float one of many used to create a barrage.
Today my colours are fresher and more vibrant than the original it was executed in a shorter time as I had other commitments.(Lunch with hubby & mum in-law).
