16x20 Oil on Canvas Sold
I knew I couldn't leave it alone. When something is bothering me about a painting, I can't let it go. I can't start another one, even though I am tired of the one I just worked on. I am in some strange in between stage of leaving one and starting another. I had done a small value study sketch before starting the painting, and thought the values were interesting. After completing it, the picture seemed a bit flat. I decided to make the background less detailed and more blue/gray and changed the road reflection to match. Then I did some highlights around the figures in the foreground using a bit of yellow hopefully adding some depth and then added some brighter reflective color in the dark value area..
