Maiden Sleeps I
derived from this original part of the secrets painting.
I played with it for a while and developed it into this….
This is obviously an improvement. However the painting still seemed to be very closed in on itself. There was more work to do, however I wasn’t sure just what that might be. So I left it for several days – turned to the wall. Got it out again and felt rather like Eeyore – ‘Its no better from this side,’ he says, shaking his head sadly.
So after several turnings of the painting finally my other side of the river then looked like this…
And indeed – this time it was better. At this point I had something to work with. After a few tweaks it resolved into the painting you see above.
