The Belle of the Sea
|UPDATED version after color was added. Notice the brightness in the water, too.|
|Before color was added - it looks flat.|
The most obvious color differences will be seen in the clouds and sky areas. The painting really pops now, where as before it didn't stand out, the frame did (which is not my goal!)
|The Belle of the SEA - BEFORE ADDITIONAL COLOR|
I really do love her sweet little face! But again, it's not about the execution of the subject and expression of the mermaid, it really comes down to the color. I feel that the sand should be deeper and the water more green.
