Tahoe Art Faire

My computer Internet crashed so I had to get my IT guy (definition: my hubby!) to get it up and running again. This a is a painting that I've been working on for a long time. Actually, I started it, putting in all the shadows with a lavender under painting and then got "stuck". I've never started with the shadows first so I wasn't really sure how to proceed. At one point I had everything in but it wasn't really cohesive so I put a glaze over the entire thing to unit it but it ended up causes my darks to bleed and give it a gray overtone. I tried to lift a little of the gray and add more details. I never could get the sky back to it's sunny day appearance. Here is my final product.

You did a great job! It looks so much more tied together with the golden wash over it. You recovered nicely from the bleeding gray colors. Awesome!
