Open the Gate Again


The Gate (work in progress)

This painting has been languishing in the studio for some time now. I last worked on it in 2008 and it just didn't seem to be going right. But today I pulled it out of the rack and had another go at it. I've simplified the composition and taken the colour down somewhat, which I think suits Newcastle better, but there's still some way to go before I'll be satisfied with it.

Your composition is very interesting- and the colors too. Looking good!

Thanks PAMO, but I think a further simplification may be necessary on the right hand side.
