- I glazed over the sky,
- Refined the building, getting more body to the colours
- Corrected the curves of the building
- added a runner. There were many joggers when I painted this view on site and I thought it would look artificial not to have any figure in a public garden.
- The bushes on the left side catch the light.
Rotonde du Parc Monceau - Oil on Canvas by Benoit Philippe
Despite the fact that I worked again on the whole painting and made some additions, I think I managed to keep the freshness that you get when you paint on location. This is an advantage of starting a painting on site and finishing it in the studio.
