Despite everything, a wonderful result!

I like it. That night blue sky is critical to the color balance of the work.

It may not be subtle, but it's beautifully atmospheric. It conveys the essence of the scene, which is the important thing I think.

Happy Christmas Rob.

Hey, Rob. It's called trials and tribulations of the plein air painter. What you've done, in spite of all the rubs, is capture the vibrancy of the season. Happy Christmas!
