This one is the perfect example of how best laid plans can go awry. As you can see by the blurry pic of my palette below, I had entertained thoughts of a strong red presence in the painting. Specifically the water tower to the right. It just didn't work, taking away the area of focus, which is the train of course. Scraped that part and toned it way down. Why didn't I see this when laying out my palette and planning the painting? Will this knowledge come with old age?
