Before and After

Sometimes it is important to reflect and revisit old paintings to see how much you've learned. Old master's paintings often hide secrets and older paintings underneath and I now have one all of my own. Brighton Pavilion was one of my original silhouette paintings from when I was still learning and figuring out the painting methods. I hadn't ever felt the need to repaint but after 2 years, and it sitting on my wall I felt it was time to let go of the old and see what I could produce now.

Here is a side-by-side of the two versions for you to see the difference, which do you prefer?

My memories of the Brighton Pavilion are vast as it is a key location in my hometown. So I have seen it go through many seasons and repairs, but I always think it looks grand in the winter when it is lit brightly with the ice rink in front. Often in rich pinks and purples with the night sky behind, it seems to elevate the structure to something even bigger than it already is.
