This painting is basically a re-make of a previous painting that came out way too dark.  Everyone talks about how flexible oil painting is and it certainly is compared to watercolor, but, if you get some area too dark on an oil it is impossible to get it light and bright again.  The same is true of watercolor, but to a greater extent.  Anyway, I always liked the painting and wanted to work it out more to my satisfaction.  It all goes back to the planning!  If I would have just done my homework and done the thumbnails and color studies initially, I would have been much better off!  Some day I'll learn my lesson.
