Recreating a new

Several years ago  ago I created a seascape painting of a sunset I experienced in Montenegro, I was never completely happy with it and so decided to put it away and re visit it when I felt ready to do so

I  have recently returned to the piece , deciding that I needed to make it more vibrant in color,  contrast, tone and depth .

Using the original as a under painting  has allowed me to create a greater depth of color and a much more vibrant piece. I still have a little more to do before it is completed however I am now much more happier with it now.

Creating my jungle dreams

I love the idea of using a conventional image using my imagination to add a little something more , starting with a photograph that I took on a sunny day in my back garden. In this case I found myself including a mysterious character in the background. This can be seen further in my follow on line work design
