Is the "local" color the one on the right or the left?? It's the same paint in the bucket! One of the panels is facing an outside window and the other faces the rest of the room. I actually thought I'd missed painting a section.
So much for local color! This type of contrast I think is more evident in subtle colors than in the primaries - but still - we need to really look, observe and compare - not just glance and assume.
One could almost say there's no such thing as a true local color.
Paint pretty -

Finished! - Even though 2 painting sessions were done on location, enough tweaking was done in the studio to disqualify it as a plein air piece. That means only 5% is enough to make it ineligible to be plein air.
It was pouring rain both mornings. Loved it!
