Taking it Further

We have all had that painting that taunts you.  The painting that gets under your skin and there doesn't seem to be a damn thing you can do about it.  That was my last painting.  I hated it, but could see some potential.  I worked on the sky and was happy with it.  Then tree was tended to, until it looked okay.  So far, so good. Then came the grass.  The bloody grass!!!!  I just couldn't get it!  I ended up wiping all the pastel off left of the path yesterday and went back to it today.  I am not overly pleased with the outcome, but it is an improvement.

Anyway, it doesn't count as another painting, but I thought I would post it.  Most of the revisions were done with soft pastels.  Okay, NOW I can move on.  Ain't this fun?



  1. Beautiful fix. I like the sky holes and the accents, you really improved this one so well. Awesome!

    1. Yes, I remembered sky holes! Thanks, Robert. I didn't give up.
