“Apple & Vine” progression
Painting over old paintings that are mediocre is very freeing. Old problems disappear under fresh paint. The process is called “pentimenti” which many painters practice.
The canvas and stretcher are still good and the old painting adds texture, depth and often color to the new painting. The energy of the old painting influences the new one.
