Waterfront Shimmer- 0521B-22x28

worked some more on this one by lightening the sky and red building, putting some darks into the trees and making the dirt around the grassy areas less orangey-red. lightened the roofs and cooled down the pavement. funny how letting a painting sit five months before finishing it changes your perception. i knew when i kept looking at it before i left for florida for the winter that it needed something....just didnt know what. threw it up on the easel today and it was like...duh!  and i made the above changes without any capitulation. now i'm happy with it and its gallery bound.
 
note- you can search in the top left of  the blogpage and type in "waterfront shimmer" if you wanna see the old version.
