Korea - Kimchi Pots in Winter Garden

Acrylic on canvas board, 12 x 16

Another in our Korean series. I wanted to try to return to the 7-step method and avoid concentrating on the details too much (as I tend to do). I was interested in the reflections on the kimchi barrels, so I concentrated on that and didn't spend too long on the painting. I'm really happy with many aspects of it, but I wonder if I should spend a bit more time on the texture of the wall, the garden, and the path - the painting seems a little too un-detailed for me.  What do you think? - Chris

  1. Hi Chris, this is very cool, love the colors and the messy brushwork here. You could wreck this lovely painting by going in after detail....if I may make a suggestion, why don't you just leave as is and refer to this painting often as a good reminder that "less is more" in terms of detail! Just a thought. Lovely piece Chris , your doing a wonderful job ! Brian
