Oops – forgot to photograph the latest stage of my Woodpigeon painting until it was too dark yesterday, so I’ve waited until this morning to post. You’ll notice that I’ve added a couple of branches, but I actually spent most of the last painting session adding and subtracting different combinations. I fully expect the composition will change further; the evolution’s what I like about this method of working. From a negative point of view, I spend a lot of time reworking parts of the painting, but then again any reworking shows a history of how the painting was made.
I’ll be working on other projects over the next few days, so I won’t have any opportunity to progress the Woodpigeons. Frustrating, as I’d like to get on with it.
