It was a warm and sunny February afternoon. I was happy to be painting in Northampton again. Revisiting a painting from a month ago, the sky seemed too dark. It was not working with the overall surroundings. After adding some light on the top, the dark sky morphed into a dark shape in the background. The door was moved more to the right until it was removed completely except for a few lines as a reminder. After a few hours of work, I realized this painting might not get any better. It is finished.
It is sometimes fun to see how a painting changed and evolved. Here are 4 progress stages from different days of December last year and the final painting yesterday.
