What would Frank do?
Paintings with problems … how to solve them? I often ask myself, “What would Frank do?” But to follow up on my May 28 blog post of the same name, I didn’t have Frank to ask (Frank O’Cain, my Abstract Watercolor instructor at the Art Students League, was going to be away for three weeks).
So I decided to take matters into my own hands (it IS my painting, after all) and try the two solutions mentioned in my May post. As I had predicted, the first option didn’t work. I tried painting a piece of paper black and putting it up in the top right hand corner, but it only made everything worse. Scratch that idea.
Moving right along, I decided to tackle the second idea: “Develop the bottom and left halves of the painting and make them stronger.”
This is the result.
So now that I like it, I’ll bring it in to show Frank. To be continued…
