…of the first painting in the first class. I was not happy with it – and although I know that every piece does not have to be a masterpiece – I felt that I had not handled it very well and that it deserved to be redone. Using non-granulating ultramarine and the horrid squirrel brush only for the sky I made a second attempt at it. I also drew this second one freehand and not from the sketch we were given to trace! And I am happier with the whole thing – so I have learnt something!
The second painting is also done on at half the size of the first one.
