So Cool-Revised

                              6x6 $90
I was unhappy with the intensity of the color in this painting, so I glazed over the whole thing with burnt sienna and then painted into it again with more neutralized colors. It's more pleasing to my eye now; I hope to get some reaction from other artists. You can scroll down to the original version "2 paintings ago". Thanks!


  1. Beautiful, makes me think of a nocturnal painting. Well done.

  2. It's hard to tell from small photos, but I actually like those intense colors, Layne. It was interesting to read what you did to change the colors. I agree with Douglas that it looks like a nocturnal painting. It has a very different feel from the original. Both are very nice, though!

  3. Les deux peintures me plaisent beaucoup... la première ne me heurtait pas... Seule votre sensibilité pouvait être le juste juge.
    De toute façon de la bonne peinture!
    Gros bisous.

  4. Yes, I actually like both but for different reasons. The cooler, brighter one is more visually exciting and creates a slight tension in the body, I don't know how other to describe it. But this one, it is still visually interesting but creates a more calmer feeling. It's like you can rest while you look upon it.
