Re-Working a Painting
BLUE SKY DREAMING
Once upon a time in a faraway land lived a beautiful princess .... Blue Sky Dreaming inspired by a faerie tale.
At some point during the glazing process I decided on a different direction with the floral crown. It was not well thought out and I did not execute it very well. It was a 50/50 call as to whether it was best to go with the initial idea or the new concept. But, in my opinion, it must be reworked or the whole painting discarded.
I decided to return to the big curvy roses, as this reflected the curves of the waves and soften the classic but severe composition.
