Tuscany paintings: good and bad

I think this painting (last seen here) is done, and I’m quite happy with the way it came out. I need to take a better photo of it, and then I think it’s ready to go up on my art website.

This one I’m less happy with. Back in December I was almost ready to declare it done, but then I decided it was all wrong. I liked it a lot in its early days, but that like faded as I added in more detail and more colors. I recently changed the sky from pink to black, which was an improvement, but it’s still not right. I think it needs some radical re-working, which I’m almost ready to do. Sometimes it’s hard to accept that a painting needs a lot of changing when I thought it was so close to done. Time usually helps me get over that.

    Hard thing to do – major re-work. I agree the top painting is stronger – I like it.

    The black sky is an interesting device – it radically changes these pieces.
