Re-worked and refined robin on fountain



I've reworked the values a bit more on this piece and also the warmth on the sunny areas. I believe you can see the difference- the top, larger photo is the newer version of the piece. Hope you find it to be improved.
BTW- I've named the newest "studio buddy"- he's Pipsqueak- Pip for short. :-)

Very nice, really gives a better sense of the sunlight, and he stands out more with the higher saturation.

Thanks Krista. I still have more to do with the robin, not satisfied, but happier. :-)

Carol, I DO like this one much better with the higher contrast. But then, I am a big fan of dark against light. This piece is amazing, but since you mentioned it, the robin did stand out when I first viewed this work. I think he needs a bit more contrast too. I can't wait to see your finished work!

I agree Deb, I like strong lights and darks as well, but I seem to have to work at it to get them! I've reposted him, and hopefully he's done! You just never know- I have to sleep on things for a few days sometimes. :-)
