I finished this painting, called ‘The Conversation’ last year. I loved it butttt…….. I just always felt flat when looking at it. I mean I loved my idea, I loved the characters etc but, well it was bland. Lacking any feeling.
So, this morning, I took it out of its storage and looked at it again. The sky just looked blandly back. The shadows were dull and the highlights were low lights
I got out my sponge and skied the sky, with a small brush I highlighted the highlights and deepened the lows and now, yes, much happier! Seems I have grown as an artist 🙂
Now it is as I imagined it when I first put brush to canvas. I hope you like it too.
