This is a detail of a larger landscape piece based on the Connemara landscape. The layers of acrylic from previous renditions add interesting textures.
I've been painting over a lot of older works recently, which I've struggled to do in the past. It's difficult to admit when something is rubbish (most of it is), but I'm finding it pretty theraputic and somewhat liberating lately.
