Reworking Langstone Mill Painting

Langstone Harbour & Mill

Just to put the picture up again. The more I looked at this painting, the more dissatisfied I became

I think that I said before that the camera has leeched colour from the image, and that is true. Nevertheless, I feel that the painting looks anaemic ( I checked the spelling and I am correct, even though the spellcheck doesn’t agree). This was supposed to look dramatic with the wild sky etc, but just doesn’t work in my opinion

I consulted my mentor at the art club, and she has given me a list of suggestions, so I shall be working on this next, hopefully not too long, trying to get some feeling into the picture

After that, I want to get back to Istanbul. I need a smaller painting, and I think the Blue Mosque will lend itself to that, as this image


I may have to remove a tree or perhaps not. This will make a nice little study. So plenty to get on with!

  1. I’m glad I’m not the only one that disagrees with spellcheck. I think it like to argue with us from both the UK and Canada…..color versus colour…gray versus grey. I love the foreground and mid ground but the sky in the photo seems lacking in colour…or is that color😋
