Artists tend to be their own worse critics. It seems that few paintings measure up to the incredibly high standards we set ourselves. There is always that temptation to make changes.
I finished Misfit last week. But over the weekend, as I looked at it, the painting seemed a bit unbalanced. I did a bit of work on the source material in Photoshop and decided that adding another trunk on the left in the middle ground would improve the balance. Yesterday, I painted it in.
But did I make the painting better? Did the original need improvement?
You tell me.
Please let me know if
a) The painting was fine the way it was
b) The change made the painting better
c) The change made the painting worse
I look forward to your comments!
