Watercolor: Working on Walls...



I have a good habit of always liking at least something about a painting...in this one (unfinished), it's the stone walls...One day, I'll like everything in a painting.

In the meantime, I've collected a stack of paintings and will crop them. I can do it with a photo, why not with my paintings?

Cropping works, right? Cut out the bad, focus on the good. Metaphor for life these days.

Love the middle one. The angle is what makes it interesting to me. Why'd you paint it that way? Just curious.

Indeed, cropping is a good thing, and why not on a painting!

Cropping is indeed a good thing, and why not utilize it on a painting? I like those stone walls, too.

Jackie, they are all the same, just a few different angles of the picture. I may finish this piece and crop it down to just the wall, which has some greenery in front of it...For now, I like to keep looking at the walls.

I love the entire painting- I love the stone walls- but I also like the gate- because it speaks to me of a way through the wall...and I always like finding a way to the other side :)
