There were 3 major structures that did not seem to fit in this painting. The yellow wall divided the house into 3 similar horizontals. There were no other shapes echoing or complimenting a big triangle roof of a middle house. The blue house on the left is a dead space, not very useful. These all have been removed or cropped.
Paints in my palette were drier than usual. Instead of making a fresh color palette, I started using the drier paints. It was harder to apply and I had to extensively use a knife. I usually smooth out the texture created by the knife. This time however, I loved the texture from dried paint crumbs. From this experience, I am planning to explore texture for future work.
