Over worked painting

Hi, All. yesterday i did a small painting of an old building to mainly practice mixing colors. That part came out fine. But i did a no no. I over worked the trees. What do you all do, scrape and fix the areas. or being just a small practice painting any way, keep it as a reminder and move on to another painting. I hope i put the question right. Thank's all.

Re: Over worked painting

Oil? You can scrape or wipe it back, use a knife or oil or your medium on a rag or tissue to wipe it away. Use it right away, or let it dry and re-use the support for something else. If acrylic, maybe you can do the same thing. Try different techniques. You may like some, not others.

Re: Over worked painting

An instructor I know actually favors scraping off oil as a planning technique. Leaves you the blocked in outline, while encouraging you to paint details differntly.
In acrylic it will obviously be dry (only Chroma Atelier can be re-opened). So you just paint over it, or paint white over it as often as you care.

Re: Over worked painting

I have washed off mistakes in acrylic, need to do it right away... warm water helps or a bit of scrubbing.. if on a side /edge .. not smack in the middle unless all the rest is totally dry before trying to rinse mistake off..
