Super Sunny and Red Shirt

Grateful for the Red Shirt!

Here something strange happened. I had the idea to focus a lot of attention on the bright part far away, with small details like the parasols and colors of far away activity.

When I had spent already a lot of time on this, the foreground didn’t evolve with it. It kept being boring and there wasn’t anything interesting happening for a very long time.

As the pool dried a bit I got worried. Didn’t want a failure painting.

Then there were these figures, imagine at already 3 hours into the session, and I could finish and create a good instead of boring painting.

>So you see, it wasn’t smart to wait for the most important part: the foreground.

But yes you can also see how small things can do so much good, like the figures here, contributing for 95% to this painting’s success.
