I posted this painting in Oct. because I didn't like the painting but I liked the figure. So it was never really finished. One of my artist friends (Marti) told me it needed more detail in the foreground, so that's what I've been working on today. I've changed the background and added detail to the foreground and it is looking a lot better. I placed tracing paper over the image and drew out different ideas right on top of the painting. I placed a large tree behind the figure, then I placed different size tree in the foreground of the background it was better. Then I tried a gate and a fence, it was a whole lot better. I decided on the fence.
This is an adventure for me, something I've always wanted to do: to be a real Artist! So I rented a studio, lets see how it goes.
