Casual Observer, 12 x 12
The second, larger version of my earlier post....The Onlookers. What larger paintings lose in spontaneity, they gain in detail. I think I lost a bit of the looseness of the first one here, but that also can come from over-thinking as I'm trying to "reproduce," the earlier painting. I need to remember to put the first aside and make the larger one its own piece. I also lost a bit of the darkest darks on the underside of the tree that the first one had....but I enjoyed the detail I could produce in the tree and I love the subject, so I'm glad to have it larger!
