Works in Progress

One year ago   |   By Nancy Colella Simply Painting

Yesterday I did this small study from an image I took at the beach recently.
It felt so tight and too close to the image so I turned it upside down and used it as a reference for this 20 x 20 over an old painting.
Beginning stage 24 x 24
When I turned it right side up,I wiped away areas and re-drew some of the shapes. Now, I like where this is going!
I'll force myself to let this dry for a few days and then figure out where to take it. The tough part will be working on it,without loosing the spontaneity or freshness it has right now.
