I usually don't mess with my plein air pieces very much after getting them back home. Although sometimes I'll adjust a dark or light after looking at them a while out of the glare of the sun. Tonight I did something I haven't done before though. I took a complete failure of a plein air and turned it around into something I don't mind. I changed the composition, added a building where there was none before, and changed the color scheme. It was liberating and fun laying down the thick paint, knowing that I couldn't hurt the painting anymore than it was already suffering.
I'm including a pic of the failed try, the re-try and a detail shot to show the paint.
