Different Strokes Challenge

Hello,  I painted this a couple of nights ago for Karin Jurick's blog, Different strokes for different folks.  It is oil on a 8 X 10 canvas panel,  took about 1 1/2 hrs.  When I saw it posted on her site,  I thought wow,  it looks so washed out and gray.  So I have to admit I went back and brightened it up a bit,  working alla prima has it's advantages and disadvantages.  I think sometimes I over blend when I work in one session, you can turn oils into mud if you aren't careful.  Have a great day!
