Thought it'd be interesting to post this painting anyway. Maybe it doesn't look like a failure to some people; its got light, distance, the composition isn't too bad, its balanced... but...
Its just not coming from ME. Its a place I love, the Five Sisters at Kintail, with light that I love; but if there is one thing I've learned - its if a painting doesn't contain some spark, some shard of my soul, some genuine reason & story, it just falls flat.
What I also know is - when I have days like these, I should get outside. Put everything away and go and stare at some water somewhere. Always a refresher.
I'll get everything out tomorrow and probably come back to this at a later date. Be great when the studio is finished... Its coming on :)
