I liked this picture in the paper because of the play of light and shade and hot and cool colours, so I’ve had a go at painting it.
Stage one was to paint quickly and very loosely.
Then I added some more dark areas.
I think you need a lot of skill and dexterity and confidence to make this free approach look interesting. This just looks clumsy to me. Then I tried a watercolour version.
The final version, below, has more detail. I’ve worked over this painting about 5 times so now is the time to stop.
