No. 203 is another version of the Egan’s Creek Greenway painting. I did two additional versions after number 201 to try a couple of alternate techniques. For this version, I painted an underpainting using a really thin coat of the local color in each area. This was so thin it was almost dripping and was intentionally a huge mess. The idea was to paint it like 201, but instead of the Burnt Sienna you would see a lighter, more free version of the same color underneath.

Overall I don’t think it works. It could have been the technique, or I might have been having a bad night. It just feels dull and lifeless compared to the earlier version. Worth a try though.
