Landscape with Artrage #2
Yes, sometimes I can be rather persistent. In my last post I showed the first result of playing around with artrage, and I had to admit that the only thing I was satisfied with was how I did the mountains.
Now, instead of throwing said painting into the dustbin I decided to try to make it better. So I removed the tree on the left side, added a sandy path in the middle and transformed the green form on the right in something which is more shrub like.
Working on this painting taught me two things:
- Don’t stick to the reference photo if the reference photo lacks compositional qualities.
- Painting with artrage makes it possible to change the painting completely. Just take the oil brush and go over it.
