At an opening of mine the other night, my high school art history teacher, whose teaching style and enthusiasm for art history was absolutely invaluable to me at that point in my life, commented on Pentimento. We were discussing one of my paintings, and I was showing him evidence of a previous painting on that canvas, before I decided to change directions. I do this quite often, paint over old paintings that I have no use for anymore. This new landscape is an example of that habit. I started a portrait a couple of months ago that I never ended up finishing. So! Now it’s a landscape. But, I thought it was cool to see the transformation.
Here are a few shots. Starting the landscape, mid point, and finished landscape with some detail shots.
