I decided today that I needed to fix one of my original landscapes
How do you do this after it is painted? PART 1
Why am I doing this (to myself?)
|This landscape painting is too minimalistic|
Why am I tearing this original painting apart today? Well, this is number one of a few that I decided I want to rework. I had a friend suggest to me that she felt this landscape was too bare. Because I take instruction to heart, and She has some good ideas, I decided that I agreed with her.
Because I am in the business of purchasing antique frames, I frequently dismantle old prints. Sometimes I find a treasure. Look at this!

OKAY, so we established that I tear things apart. My sister tore apart vacuum cleaners, I tear apart paintings. This happens from time to time~especially, if you are someone that stares at something, trying to ascertain what in the world is wrong with it.
Back to my painting. I have had the Landscape hanging over my bed for a very long time. I knew that it needed something because the colors are really GREAT on it but it didn't sell.
This painting looks too bare. There are empty areas around the painting that just need extra detail. Unless you are someone who really likes NO CLUTTER (and even then you may not like the bareness of this), you will agree with me.
