Re: Oil-from-life challenge, July 2019: optional "daily painting" theme!

Bravo, Tom! If you do more work on it in the studio, I hope you'll post the finished piece here. Looks great!

July daily painting #28: I painted this exact scene two years ago, but I did not look at that painting again before stepping up to the easel and trying again. I didn’t want to be influenced by the earlier picture. One thing that changed was my canvas: I chose a wide surface this time.

Another difference is that this time I painted it all in one go, in about two hours; last time I worked on the painting for three full afternoons! So the “old” one is more detailed and refined, but the “new” one has its merits too. Here’s today’s effort. "The Canal from Rehoboth to Lewes," oil on linen, 6" x 12."

And here's the painting from two years ago. "Boat on the Rehoboth-Lewes Canal," oil on panel, 11" x 14," 2017.
