Painting 2 Narcissus.
I continued working in the same light, in the morning. Normally I look for a backlit situation, here this also happens, but it’s the other side of the house, which funny enough delivers a different light effect.
Here the light stays ‘paintable’ for just a few hours. After I need to shift the full set-up to the left, left, left, to be able to get ‘an almost similar view’. Obviously, changing, moving the set-up doesn’t make it easier.
When the light shifts you can’t add the different (new) parts of light and shade. These then change the total too much.
Here I started with just one. But felt it needed a second one, almost at the end of the painting I stuck an extra narcissus in.
(midway in I stuck an extra narcissus in, compo felt empty, this is a larger size.)
