Seems like that is so often the question I'm asking myself when I re-work a p/a. This is a commission from the folks I work with - a gift for someone who is leaving our area. I'm not sure I'm improving it!! :rolleyes:
I was trying to enhance the feeling of direction of light, sense of distance....
I'm considering wiping out most of the detail in the foreground yellow area and trying it again with a big brush this time. Any thoughts are welcome - I have to give it to her on Wed!!! :eek:
What do you think?

Wow! no comments on this one? actually these two...The first is so quick and fresh. Very nice. On the second, I think your refinements have been good choices. Just enough detail, but not too much. The yellow in the foreground is a good advancing color and echoes throughout the painting. :clap: Super work. I hope you delivered it w/o changes and that your clients were pleased.

The second is more controlled, of course, but really lovely.

I think your idea of larger swaths of yellow in the forground is a good idea. That is one item from your pa that is outstanding. Seems choppy in the studio piece. I like the softer yellows in the first also. So what will your decision be?

I'm sure this is already given but on the third image, if the foreground were smoother and less bright, my eye would move to the lighter distant areas. I think you did succeed in getting more depth though. Very nice work.
