I finally completed this painting that I started in 2012. You can read about it here. I was never happy with the background and didn’t know what to do with it, so I left it alone, until today.
As you can see, the background definitely needed something. I also completed another painting that I started in 2013, before I went traveling. You know how you just have to be in the mood to do something? Well, until today, I wasn’t in the mood to finish this painting, but I am happy with it now.
In fact, I had started a still life on this canvas that I wasn’t happy with, so I used a texture medium to cover up the old painting and start a new one. As this was a large canvas, I didn’t want to waste it. Both of these paintings were inspired by my diving photos of a trip I took to The Red Sea. Looks like I might have another look at my diving photos and see what else I can paint!
