It’s official. I am a week behind. A WEEK. Oh well. No worries. I have two more that are almost complete. No really. I do. But I am feeling I might abandon them, and start fresh.
Neither of these, #20, are finished in my opinion. They both show my limitations. Absolutely no sense of depth or distance. Ugghh!
I thought this piece was too busy. I wanted layers of texture. But I ended up TOO busy. So I started to bury the marks. Then I thought, well, maybe if I simplify the sky, it will calm the marks down.
In the second attempt, I added the few hills in, that are in the gold section (See photo). But it wasn’t working. So I “erased” those too. But now it just looks blah-bland. Or am I just stuck on being too literal?
So posting, and calling it done for now. But I will come back to this. I really do like Mingus in this. Maybe I will cut it out and use it in a collage. LOL.
This is the view of Mingus from the south. I was heading north on the 69.
