Flock III final.... Lost some birds along the way!

Unsatisfied with the balance between tones, I finally opted for a drastic change in that area...

 The sunset became the focal point rather than the birds. Textures remained fairly subdued...

These types of exercises are useful for me since they emphasize color balance and color application rather than subject... I'm leaving it at that.

Note to self: "There's no two ways about it... my strongest paintings come about when I have a strong sense of direction right from the outset... or when I am very passionate about the subject matter, which was not the case here!".
