It ain't gonna work, and no amount of trying will fix it. That was the conclusion I reached 2 days ago with this painting. It already had at least 3 do overs.

A disaster called the Brooklyn Bridge acrylic 24x48

So I painted the entire canvas with two coats of black gesso and started over.

I can already hear my friend Harvey saying..."what, another black sky! That will be mild compared to what he'll say when I add the treess and barns.

FYI...the sky and clouds were rendered with a wet paper towel. The foreground with a palette knife.

You may rethink this - I have a painting hanging in my living room because I don't want to sell it (prints, yes) - I repainted that one five times!-I think it's now a good painting (called Army of Light)
did i give you my art web site? (forgetful me)
and thanks for the "follow"
have a good weekend, jeannette
