Longhorn Revisited

Oil on 5x7 archival canvas panel.
This painting was originally posted on March, 22nd. I had some reservations when I posted it but wasn't too sure as to why. I came up with what I believe is the solution to my doubts...the color of the steer and the color of the sky were very strong and very separate. They both had to be integrated to exist in harmony upon the same canvas. By adding more variations of color...some sky into the steer... some steer into the sky, it simply "feels" better. This is a recurring problem ( and solution) for me.

  1. Nice job tweaking this one Dean. It looks much better this way.

  2. Thanks, Frank...I greatly appreciate the comment. C&C welcome!! That's one of the perks of a blog...the chance to get meaningful advice and comments to jog my sometimes napping "art brain" into awareness.
