Brandberg #2 – update
I like viewing my work in this way. As soon as I saw the photo of the painting, some problems popped out. There is work to be done on the foreground rock, and the mountain is fraught with difficulties. I have some time to deal with all of this and would like to keep the painting in view of the next little while before sorting them out.
At least I am over the dreadful lassitude that gripped me a couple of weeks back (how is that for an oxymoron). I am sure this has something to do with the good painting board I bought for this work. I was fiddling with silly little bits and pieces. And I have made progress in some of the tasks required to be ready for 27 November. What do you think so far?
Reflections for further work:
- I need to soften the whole mountain to push it back a little
- The lines between sections of the foreground rocks can be softened.
- The distant middle ground could do with some more layering.
- The sand in the foreground on the left could use some texture. The whole desert floor is scattered with tiny chips rock from the dolerite dyke.
