Painting of the Boathouse


The above painting of Boathouse Laugharne sold this week. It was a fairly large painting that had been hanging on my wall and not exhibited.

 If paintings are in my studio for a while unframed there is always a temptation to add or change things as you see the painting with different eyes on another day. This is why it is always difficult to know when a painting is finished. It is a common worry with artists.

There is always of course the risk that the painting could be ruined. This is more the case in my experience with portraits. The portrait may be made up of a thousand brush marks but the last one may be crucial and changing it may take away the likeness or spontaneity.
