Today's painting is at that super-important resting phase; I don't see anything about it that I want to change (okay, maybe the road needs to get a little lighter as it get farther away), but it is too soon to call it done.
Speaking of that resting phase...I've had the painting below hanging right there for a week. I wanted to love it, and I almost did, but it just wasn't quite right. I knew it was something about the dark green foreground. (Note that the photo below is slightly lighter/brigher than the actual painting.)
After cleaning my studio this morning, I pulled the painting off the wall and added some green-gold to the near foreground to help create depth and to add variation to the color. And that, my friends, was the answer!
Happy freaking Friday!
