REWORKING TWO



The top right of this one was just wrong - also the table didn't look like a table at all.  So "destroyed" that part with a rough bristle brush, some white gouache, a bit more color on the tall parts of the flowers.  Then just cropped off some of the top.















For this one, I just cropped a bit off the edges and bottom, bringing the view in closer.



Now, on to something new!

Nice use of colors and overlapping and/or simplified shapes! I really love the "floating" apple!

Dear Rhonda - both of these paintings turned out lovely. Using the quadrants for your design works especially well. Hope you are having a great start to the new week. Take care. Hugs!
