REWORKED "FIVE PINES" MIXED MEDIA ON CRADLED PANEL © SAUNDRA LANE GALLOWAY


As I often do when a work stays home with me for awhile, I've reworked it a little.  It is the hazard or blessing that belongs to the creator of the work I suppose!  I like this MUCH better!  I was always bothered a little by the colors I chose for the sky, and I felt the body of the work needed a little brightening.  This all falls in line with my working with brighter colors and using a bit more pattern
or texture.  You will see that the sky is now a beautiful turquoisy blue with some bit of pattern throughout.  I brought the color of the sky down into the land a bit and repeated texture here and there for added interest and a unifying touch.  I also removed the garish looking yellow that bugged me too and toned it down a bit while keeping it light. 
previous version...this photo makes the sky color look two toned, in reality it was all more the blue to the left and the foreground was a little dark...just didn't appeal to me.  I also added a few highlights to the trees. 

It's ok if you were attached to the earlier version (though that no longer exists), but for my growth as an artist I need that brighter color with more texture!

HAPPY CREATING!

I think it is still beautiful, Saundra. I do like the changes though must admit that I think the yellow in the first version made it sing.

Thanks for your comment CrimsonLeaves. I knew there would be some who liked parts of the older version...that is OK...there was really nothing WRONG with the older version, I just felt some things needed changing for my taste...lol...how dangerous of me to put both out there! lol
