Bowness Buddies [22”x30”, acrylic]

Bowness Bark3

I’ve resolved many of the issues with this painting and I’m [definitely] ready to move on to another one.  I’m really liking my doggie in this painting – she’s kind of a large version of my Kassie.  She loved Bowness Park…  ah, we had some good times together there, that’s for sure.  Enjoy!


  1. This is improving greatly! The hard part is to make changes and keep the spontaneity of the original concept! Suggestions would be to get rid of a bunch of hard edges around that rock band on the center left -that would lay them down and make them less abrupt. The guy and dog and bridge are great. I think you are right -I would grade the sky darker at the top and from left to right. Perhaps add some of the colours from the foreground into it as well -see Brent's show images from Wallace Gallery.
    Great work girl!!!

  2. On checking again -there is something odd about the small size of the man's head...look at the original man from the previous step -his head is small but the angle of the gaze is really interesting.
