David Meldrum Watercolour

Old horizons

I’ve painted this before, the first version was smaller and had some sailing boats for a centre of interest. I left out the boats this time, I’m happy I dared to let the composition work without eye-magnets such as people or boats. Saying that, I think the end result is a too flat and therefore lifeless, I will not go down this path again, consciously at least.
Storm and sun. Arches rough 39 x 29 cm.

As usual you your worst critic, not one of your best ,and maybe because of the sky. And these is not usual on you, because your way of painting skies is always wonderful. Everybody can make a little mistake.

I've been using too much pigment recently while I paint. It's important to let the light show through. This painting is a good example, it's very, very flat. I've left this little failure behind me already, time to move on to better things! 🙂
