Painting No. 129 - Cheekwood Walk II
With 129 I wanted to build off the study from 127 and do a larger version of that same image. The proportions were a little different so it's not as tall but it's mostly the same.
It's interesting what translates when going from a smaller study to a larger version. Instead of viewing the canvas as small you can look at it as the brushes being big. Everything is a little more crude and overstated. With a larger canvas you have more room to work and can give it a little more finesse.
One thing I like about this one is the rock steps to the left. In 127 those got totally lost but here it actually feel like they have some volume.
