Revisiting the Past

Red Sea Bannerfish – Mixed Media on Canvas – 60x45cm – 2017

I hadn’t been happy with the above painting pretty much since I made it.  The fish just sat there.  Before I decided to part with it forever, I thought I might try and do something with it, so I did.  I am not sure it is any better.  I added a different blue, some more fish, and some stencils.  I may just hang onto it for another few years before I make a final decision.

I decided to revisit this painting from one I made in November.   I gave the small canvas to a friend of mine as a house warming present.  She recently moved back from up North in Yorkshire, Emily Bronte country.  I really liked it and decided to make another one, but larger.  I used sand medium and used extra sand from the beach.  I could probably do this again and it will come out completely different.

I had some leftover paint, and so I made this little one afterwards:

I always feel better after painting a seascape.  Enjoy and thanks for stopping by.
