The High Road
After painting two small works last week, this week I've been playing around with this larger piece. The problem with this piece is that I'm not good at painting realistically so that this piece looks like the work of a beginning painter -a rather clumsily realistic effort. I'm not a beginning painter, and I don't like looking like one. Of course, my main purpose was to experiment with soft, moist sunny day effects, and I think on that basis, it works pretty good, but as a painting it lacks a lot of polish.
