I worked more on the Movement in Blue hydrangea painting. I cropped it down on the left and right edges, tried to darken some areas. And I think it's overworked. It actually looks better in the photo than in person...oh, well. Have another started from another photo. My hydrangea by the front door is still blooming out, after I trimmed off some huge blooms that were turning pale violet grey. The painting began as this (well, this was the 3rd stage).
And it became this. Hard to get the pale petals to the right to read as anything without putting a little color on them...and then it became too much.
Sometimes one needs a painting angel to sit on your shoulder and say, "That's enough. Put the brush down."
Sometimes these work, sometimes they don't...starting another soon.
