I like the use of color throughout, especially the water.
The mood is serene. I was listening to spa music when painting and felt calm.
I’ve spent the past pandemic year pushing boundaries with my art and usually listening to Bruce Springsteen concerts, to encourage experimentation.
This painting is a return to a more reined in and a more tranquil approach. Both approaches of a bit on the wild side for me and now, more restrained have offered an opportunity for learning and having fun.
What could be improved for next time:
I’m not sure that this painting is done. I’ve stopped for a few days. I’m content with the bottom half of the painting.
I’m wondering about adding slightly more color and detail to the distant island to the left in front of the mountain.
The sky seems just okay, maybe could be improved upon, but have no ideas, yet.
