about 6 x12 pastel and watercolor on Uart paper
This one is a serious woofer, destined for the kennel. A day ago it was a very harmonious golden/green light painting, but I have been reading George Inness and he talks about adding a surprise of color. Which I did and should have stopped....but Noooooooooo. Instead I was compelled to change more and more till it was unrecognizable and then I wiped it, worked, wiped it again and finally this. Oh dear!
A quote from George's son (named George, of course)as he watched his father paint,"All the rest was dark and in perfect tone. With that supreme stroke he struck the accidental, and pushed the harmony almost to discord." Well this one was pushed...to the other side.
Strike it down for woofer and begin another.
