Here lies a cautionary tale related to the painting mentioned in my previous post. After spoiling the original through over working, I tried to rescue something of worth from the painting. While I’m reasonably happy with what I now have, that contentment quickly evapourates when I see photos of different versions side by side. My only consolation is that the newer version looks better “in the flesh” than it does in the photo.
I suppose I can therefore try to convince myself that the earlier version really looks far better in the photo than it ever did on the canvas.
