changes to "fall," tweak to "red orange" / by Philip Tarlow

DETAIL:  fall, 38x36" after todays intervention

2:10 PM: today i intended to start a new painting in my late summer series. but there was a minor tweak i needed to make to red orange, which i got done very quickly. when i cast my first glance at fall, which is the most recent in the series and popped out in just one session,  the yellow seemed off to me. i had been thrilled with the immediacy and freshness of this piece, but i can't ignore what my gut feeling is, so i launched back in to it. i'm not sure how i feel about the changes i made, but i'll be able to know better once we're back from a quick trip to edwards & denver on thursday. the revised painting is on the left; before & after images are below.
