More Sky

So I added more texture and color to the sky of the "Lost Tracks" painting. The two bright spots at the top are from my lighting in the studio. The paint is very wet and is reflecting a lot of light, plus my studio lighting set-up is not great.
I think that the new color and texture helps to enhance the perspective and helps to unify the look of the painting. Getting the brush strokes to move through the power lines is tough and is something that I will need to work on. Still, not too bad.
I continue to work on my photography of the work. The previous image in t his post was taken in my basement with two 100 watt lamps, but the color was wrong and there was a lot of glare at the top of the painting.
The image above is a repost and was taken outside with the previous camera. The color is good and the light is ok. It is best to see them in person, of course.
