I have been practising the washes Jean does as warm ups, they are not as easy as she makes them look!!! It is quite tricky getting the texture and variation in them, so studied one of hers closely and tried to do the same!!!
I think Jean would definitely say this isn't finished so am letting it sit in my art room and will keep going back to it to see what it might need... the composition isn't right, too uniformly diagonal cross the foreground and not enough interest so will probably have a go at doing something about that. Not worried if I ruin it, there is a painting on the back and it was just a practice, though I do like the sky and parts of the foreground, might have a go with some cling film next time as Jean did in the class.
Leave me a comment if you see anything I could do with it, having been to one of Jean's workshops I now know that most of my paintings aren't finished, and I know I need to work on them for longer and need to be a lot more patient!!!
