Last Kick Refreshed
This painting has been adjusted in order to correct the original values as painted outside in bright light. Not only was the light bright, but I was in mottled light as I tried to get both the painting and the palette out of direct sunlight. The resulting contrast was off significantly from the objective. This happens quite often as the eyes shut down and fool you. It happened again yesterday while painting in the north Hockley.
Last Kick at It, 10x12, Oil on canvas
Here the snow was brightened slightly, the chroma of the foliage was increased slightly, a few small hi lites and accents were emphasized.
The palette was paint from the day's painting and a #6 flat hogs bristle was used.
