Tree on the Edge

Well, this was interesting. This is a painting I did several weeks ago. It was weak and muddy and I didn't think it was worth trying to salvage.....but today I looked at it again and thought it had kind of a nice quality despite the problems. I sanded down the painting and put Galkyd lite all over the canvas panel. This method is something I tried a couple times before. I learned about it in Kevin MacPherson's book. The Galkyd makes it so you can feel like you are painting wet into wet ...even though you aren' are working on the top of a previous painting. To me...the new version seems significantly improved from before.
