If unhappy with the development of a painting I’ll risk wrecking the entire picture with drastic alterations. Sometimes it pays off. Sometimes not…
In the instance of Poplar Treehouse I was disappointed in my choice of composition. I felt it was too symmetrical resulting in a dull appearance.
I sat on the picture for a while before deciding the only way forward was to make dramatic changes.
This was the result.
Which do you prefer?
