Hayward Japanese Garden (revised), oil on panel, 12x9"

Hayward Japanese Garden (revised), oil on panel, 12x9"

Despite the encouragement to leave this painting and “don’t touch a thing” I wasn’t satisfied with it and made some adjustments to the color. I’m much happier with it now, although I wish my photo was more accurate. In real life the color is less fluorescent than it is appearing on the screen, although the actual scene in person was so brilliant it nearly was fluorescent.
