A Revisit

Some of you may disagree but, I felt this painting needed a revisit. Simplify, Simplfy Sinplify! And add some mystery. This was a small painting (12 x 12) with way too much information. All that busyness from the bicycles was distracting. And too many details and hard edges on the foreground figure. I also toned down the color and made more use of the greys. Now with less detail, more mystery, softer edges and larger dominate shapes, it is a more unified painting. (Although, now as I write this, I can see it still needs a few minor adjustments.)

Good choice, Linda, I like it better now too.

What a difference! It went from a painting with people to a painting with character.
I love it!
