Lobos Crash Revisited

My last weblog entry introduced a new studio painting from a recent trip to Pt Lobos. You can read about it here. It was a good piece as-is, but after looking at it for awhile, decided it need a little more dramatic early morning light. The study I used was a photo taken about mid day and the scene was fully lit, which is kind of the way I painted it. Here is the original photo which I used as a study for the painting.

So, I spent today touching it up a bit to add more shadows, putting a little more color in the large wave, and other minor touchups. You can see the before and after by moving the sliding bar back and forth. The newer version is on the right.

I hope everyone thinks it’s an improvement!
