Old Faithful!

Old Faithful!

When you are pushing yourself to experiment to achieve something a little different in your paintings, I think it is sometimes comforting to return to a subject that you are familiar with, such as “Old Faithful”.

In doing this, you may not feel that you are pushing the boundaries but I believe that, following your experiments, it is unlikely that you’ll paint your familiar subject in exactly the same way, with the same colours. It is because of this that I believe this is a good exercise to try. Compare the paintings!
