Day Brightener

22x30 watercolor on Kilimanjaro 140 lb cold press paper of orange and red daylilies and daisies growing through an old weathered fence.  A few years ago I first painted this country scene and even then thought it needed more work.  So I've now spent the day reworking its background and adding blooms, enhancing values, and trying to add a bit more punch overall.  There is something about worn out wooden picket fences that beg to be painted.
