'City of Glass 5: Truthville, NY' (Finished day 3, p.m.)

Maybe....movement around the periphery and a still centre. The top of the painting/sky was too strong so has now lost its prominence and the top of the tower and the dot of Truthville are now the point of focus- the drawing has been strengthened there and the Hudson River, the state-lines and Lake Champlain all lead the eye. Even though the tower is cut into the paint, it appears further forward than the state-shapes -so their strong colours now work and are held by the drawing. Then the tower disapears behind the yellow-orange corner so now the painting has space and depth. There is an oddness about this painting that I really like - it's done.
