I was nervous about what would happen when I brought the painting inside...would the colors be way off? would this panel carrier really work?
Well, it did look different once I got it inside, the colors were much more muted. But the strange thing was as soon as it got even the tiniest bit of light it brightened right up again. I've never seen one of my paintings do that before.
I also limited my palette a little more than I usually do, I thought it would help to unify the piece.
Oil on panel, 9x12 inches
