Thanks Ivan! The actual painting in Monumental doesn't have quite as much yellow. I took several pics and for some reason they all had that yellow in them. The same with the "everything..." pic. The red spot in the sky is a much more subtle pinkish on the painting.
Your feedback is quite lively and I really appreciate it.
BTW,I think the title "monumental "sounds a little obnoxious, but it was actually named jokingly referring to the monumental headache it gave me working it out.
I read an interview with the great wildlife artist Robert Bateman. He said his paintings are something he has to fight through and a lot of times it seems like the painting will be a disaster and he keeps fighting and it works though. I really needed to hear a pro say that because I had began to think it was just me.
