This was painted during the two-hour Olmsted Paint-Quick 2023 in Atlanta last Sunday morning. It placed first in the open division. These are the only images I have, as it sold at the event. They show the influence that lighting conditions make; the photographs are of the same painting! Neither is quite correct. The top lighter one shows more detail, but plays down tonal contrasts and makes some of the oranges too strong. The lower one dulls everything and blurs detail. So as the viewer, you will have to superimpose the two!
