continued re-work of irma / by Philip Tarlow

11:50 AM: in my continuing re-work of irma, i greatly simplified the composition this morning. BELOW are comparative views of yesterdays version, this morning and just now. i realized about half an hour ago that the pink was all wrong, and was fighting with the main events of this painting, taking away form their beauty and individuality. so now they sit in a naples yellow atmosphere, where they can sing.
