Village Corner


16x16
oil on panel

I can't decide.... I don't think I like it. I started yesterday and had it "done" and then I wiped some off and changed colors in the shadow and trees today. I still think the foreground shadow is too dark. And I think overall, it seems busy or cluttered. I know its a city... I guess I like things very simple. For once, the image here looks better than the real painting. One more try tomorrow to make it sing. And then moving on!

My first thought when I saw this image was "oooh, I like this!" - so it was with surprise and amusement that I read your comments... maybe you will like it better tomorrow. Or maybe you'll change it, and I'll like it even more. It will be fun to see!

I know this is a long time after your having painted this. I hope you did not change it. The cool darker foreground is not a problem. It helps to frame the focaus of interest- the storefront. The rest of it is a penumbra of muted colors. This transfixed my attention onto that center of interest and it is beautiful. I've learned something from you. Thanks
