high key sunday

Another old painting wiped off and repainted. The small images show how the painting, "Sunday," looked after I wiped the pastel off with a sponge brush. On the left, you can see the ghost of a river scene. The image on the right is how it looked upside down before I began painting on it again. The paper is Arches 140 lb hot press watercolor with a pumice ground. Midway, I applied spray-fix to get more tooth but all it did was make an interesting speckled texture in the pastel. I left this painting in a relatively high-key value range; no more tooth to punch the darks. I'm calling it "Sunday Again."
