I had issues with yesterdays painting. I made the mistake of having 2 things that interested me. One was an interesting backlighting of the island ( i know, what island?) and the moody lighting of the bridge. 3/4's way through I messed up the island and mixed warm and cool colors on the canvas. This perturbed me but I kept going.
After a nights rest I couldn't forget this error and realized the problem. Upon further investigation I saw that my distant island looks like a close up weed grouping competing with the bridge. Well the trusty knife came out and scraped the unbelievable island into oblivion.(also known as a paper towel). The bridge, while not being an accurate linear rendering, I felt stuck with my original color and light attempt and sufficed as a focal point. Again I'm going for light and nothing else. I hate reworking but this needed something.
I'm beating a dead horse and won't attempt another bridge painting for at least...... a day.
