I think I prefer the black and white version, as the sky in the colored painting is too dark for my taste. I usually do a pale wash for background, but I have noticed that when I scan my finished product some of the color fades and, as a result, the sky looks almost white. Has anyone else found this to be the case?
At any rate, I made an effort to really blue that ol' sky this time but now I think that I overdid it. Oh well. What's done is done...at least as far as this week's contribution is concerned.
