a dry work has both advantages and disadvantages. Rhythms and brushwork, often determined by the current mood of the artist, will be invariably different. I have to feel that my time will be well-spent in returning to the work. These are not studio paintings. These are plein-air works that were "finished" (but often not to my satisfaction) on the spot. I am gradually learning how to paint in one session which requires a maximum amount of thought and a minimum amount of paint. Otherwise, the colors all become murky, in a mid-value range. Revisiting allows for corrections in color temperature and in value...reestablishing the darkest darks and the lightest lights. If the draftsmanship is off, I won't even bother. "Baughman Barn" was revisited yesterday to my satisfaction. Although the yellow-golden quality is gone and the color temperature has shifted to cool, I believe that the work has been improved.
