PAINTINGS - "STEMS Plein Air" Pt.3

This evening I decided to gamble...don't know if I won or lost. I reworked my Tractor and Thresher painting. The original was done on an overcast morning. I figured the layout was locked down, but I wanted to see if I could add some "jewel strokes" and punch up the color, contrast, and structure. There were some nice little orange clouds around sunset...don't think I did them justice. Overall, though, I think like it better.

The refinements are fantastic. The contrast and additional detailing make everything come together wonderfully. The background and tractor are the biggest things that jump out and scream improvement for me. I knew this was going to be my new favorite of the series from seeing the thumbnail on my blog roll.

Great work.

Thanks, Grey...glad I didn't ruin the thing. Before you decide on your favorite, though, I'm about to post one more that I finished tonight. Let me know what you think.
