Jimmy Longacre_subjective realist landscape paintings_GARDEN GATE

A Good way to increase your skills is to very consciously select a subject that holds a challenge for you.  The challenge here was adjusting the values in the gate and its background so that it reads as a coherent passage.  This type of exercise requires careful analysis of what's going on.  When I get it right the result is pleasing to me as the basis for a larger painting. When I get it wrong, it goes in the trash, and it's on to the next canvas!
