Red Roses repainted
I repainted this piece recently hopefully for the better. Each year I learn a little more about painting which gives you the knowledge and confidence to tackle problems you face.
This painting I had for a few years and I thought it was ok at the time, but as time went on the more I looked at it the more I thought it could use some brighting up but I just didn't know what to do. So I thought what does it hurt to experiment.
I made a middle value grey for the background from the red and the green I used in the roses and replaced a white cloth for the dark brown table top.
Now I think the painting has better color harmony to it.
