ALL THINGS RECONSIDERED
A number of viewers responded positively to my last post, Here Today, in which I showed the before and after of several paintings I recently reworked. The changes ranged from sprucing up to major overhauls. Here are a few more.
They may not all have succeeded equally, but I think they are generally improved, and it is a useful learning exercise (circles are one recurring theme). I also had better lighting and sharper focus today when I photographed the new versions than when I photographed many of the originals.
I will return to posting new work after this.
In some cases, the changes were relatively minor.
In others, I intensify color. In some paintings I expand on an idea. Or I make a whole new painting, incorporating parts of the original.
I can’t find the photo of the original, horizontal version of 1.17.9, but much of it remains visible beneath the pink surface.
