Revisiting "Georgia Red"
One of my goals this year is to revisit a few paintings as part of the learning process. I've been playing with this 30"x 40" acrylic on deep gallery-wrapped canvas one for the last two days... see the 'before' below. It's still a work in progress, but I need to sleep on it and look at it with fresh eyes tomorrow. The funny thing is that I thought I liked this painting when I finished it back in 2008. Sometimes it's best to gesso over a problem painting and go at it fresh, but I have learned a LOT from this one by tackling some weak points. Critiques are very much welcomed in the comments!
