|The original state|
Lately I have been busy reworking old paintings, trusting that I have become better and can spot and improve troubled aspects of unsatisfactory paintings. "Summer Marina" is one such example. I never liked the chalkiness of the background trees, although I was happy with the composition of the colorful boats and their sails all grouped together and sandwiched between the dark shapes of the trees and reflections. So I tackled the background chalkiness and, at the same time, jazzed up the water and boats with dots. How do you like the new and improved painting?
