Plein air pic redone

I assume this will qualify in this section. The original pic is 8 x 10 acrylic on canvas panel, painted on location at the Bok Tower park in Florida in 2007. I was about to use it to paint a 12 x 16 studio pic, but decided instead to simply redo this one. Thereby destroying the original in the process. I've given some intermediate steps as well. [The fotos for the intermediate steps were taken while the pic was on the easel under flourescent light.] Final pic is 8 x 10 acrylic on canvas panel. Total rework time ~2 h. [Again, like all uploaded fotos, the blue is off. The pic has an intense blue.]

Well it is an improvement. You could have made a color photocopy and tried out your ideas on that first if you wanted to be safe. The results of your revisions however speak for themselves.
Have fun, Dave
