:: Exploration ::

Each painting is an exploration in unknown country, or as Manet said, it is like throwing oneself into the sea in order to learn to swim. (Prunella Clough)

Although there are many flaws in this painting, I find that it has the good bones for a future and more elaborate painting. Let me explain… The sky is not overworked, which is good. Then there are two buildings juxtaposed one in front of the other, giving interesting depth to the painting. Then there is a truck right smack in the middle of the two buildings, which abuts and makes the depth more dynamic (had you seen that?). Then the front fence introduces the eye into the scenery and on top of that, on the right hand side of the red building, the eye is lead into infinity… yeah! The greens are terrible, the shadows are wrong, but in a future painting, that can be fixed… hopefully -)

Bien qu’il existe de nombreuses lacunes dans ce tableau, je trouve qu’il a de bons os pour une peinture plus élaborée. Laissez-moi vous expliquer … Le ciel n’est pas surchargé de travail, ce qui est bon. Ensuite, il existe deux bâtiments juxtaposés l’un en arrière de l’autre, ce qui donne une profondeur intéressante. Ensuite, il y a un camion entre les deux bâtiments, qui bute et rend la profondeur plus dynamique (aviez-vous remarqué cela?). Puis la barrière en-avant introduit l’œil dans le paysage et en plus de cela, sur le côté droit du bâtiment rouge, l’œil est conduit à l’infini … yeah! Les verts sont terribles, les ombres sont maladroits, mais pour un futur tableau, ceci peut-être réparé … j’espère bien -)
