Luscious. ................... . SOLD

It is now 4th July and I have repainted this small painting...allowing a bit more scope and trying very hard to reduce the amount of white that I mix with the hues.  I think the difference is not certain to what degree it improves it but will persevere with the exercise.

I painted this small painting in class and had problems with it straight away. One of the other students liked it so I offered it to her but not before I brought it home and did a bit more work on it. Like many of my paintings I think the values are wrong.....I am beginning to think that, as a general rule, I use too much white paint. This is particularly obvious once I have photographed the works. Am going to repeat this painting and try to reduce the amount of white in the colour mixing......will then upload the other to compare the two.
