I've been experimenting with different methods lately, and this painting is kind of a mish-mash of different things. I started with a block-in (which isn't my normal way), but then fell back on my island/ocean approach for the windows and bright red of the house. My goal is to find a happy balance of the two, since I like them both for different reasons. And though I like this painting, I still don't have the answer. My fear is that there IS no perfect balance. That every painting calls for a different, unique approach. And that I will be constantly seeking. Is that good or bad? I don't know.
