Sycamores by the River



This painting is actually a very old one that I reworked to bring it up to my current standards. Unlike many of my old paintings, this one had a good composition and generally decent color selection, so it could be built upon and improved. The original painting was far too dark and shadowy (that was how I painted back in the day), and the water needed more detail and reflected light. Fortunately, the changes were easy to make - the old painting is shown below as a comparison.

Acrylic painting: 14" x 17"
