Took another stab at this view of the Newport Bridge from Jamestown RI.
Check Post # 161 for the beginning of this work.
Here is the progression thus far:
First I redid the slope of the bridge to the far right. I changed it by a half-inch, so you may not even notice. Next I added the little cattle shack and then the greenery around the barn. I then added the tree in the foreground but still have leaves to add. I also worked on the over-all foliage a bit too.
I’m on the fence with this painting. I want to quit it and banish it to the basement.
I do not like the quintessential little barn in the painting. I find it annoying even if there really is a tiny cattle shack on this property in real life. I feel like maybe I should pipe in little ducks and a rainbow too.
I could add some cows, but that might annoy me even more.
I could just paint over the barn and leave it plain old farm fields…I just don’t know what I want to do.
Here, I will ask you the viewers to vote:
I’m just not feeling it. I sure could use some input.
On that note, I will leave you with some other cool photos sent to me by my mom. She went on a sailing exposition and snapped a really cool photo of the lighthouse near the bridge.
I just love how the bridge looks like it is springing out of the woods. Love it.
Thanks a bunch!
